I never really went in for the whole "I'm gonna keep an online journal that everyone can read" thing. But since I guess really the point of this site is to share experiences and feelings about places we visit, I'll give it a shot.
I came to Philadelphia, I guess it was the end of August, because I was cast in a production here of the show Dog Sees God. I was pretty intent on performing in my show and then leaving. I had a whole lot of personal baggage here that I don't want to get into now, and frankly I was a little annoyed to be leaving my family after having only been with them for 5 days.
Well rehearsals started up, and they were fun, I enjoyed the show and the people.
There are some great beaches in the area, and I've gotten to a couple of them. Actually, that was how I spent my first weekend here. Much nicer then the beaches of MN. Though Lake L'Homme Dieu is nice :-D
About a week and a half ago, we, some of the cast of DSG and I, went to a bar called Fox and Hound which we were delighted to discover has $2.50 pints on Tuesdays. Of course the downside of that night was that I had apparently parked in a No Parking Zone and my car was towed.
Last week a friend of mine from high school came through the city. I finally took the opportunity to do some really touristy things. We saw the liberty bell, independence hall, and had a drink at a colonial pub called City Tavern. Then we hit South Street and went to Jim's for Cheese Steak. Thank you Christine (Irish4rocks) for that advice!
Anyway, as I said, I'm new to this, and I kinda rambled. If anyone who reads this wants to give me some advice on improving my blogging technique, don't be shy. I welcome constructive critisism.
