Stand-up comedy junkie, geek, and closet romantic. Introspectively sexy. Flyyer than your girlfriend, fresher than your crew. 'Bougie', 'siddity', and generally okay with that. But sometimes, I just wanna do hoodrat stuff with my friends. My richness consists not in the extent of my possessions, but in the fewness of my wants. And all I want is simplicity and success. And maybe some more shoes.
Philadelphia Food and Restaurant Guide
Worth the click to enlarge.
Notes from a know-it-all-local:
- Aside from a very small section of South Philly, no one cares about Pats & Geno’s. They are for tourists. Also, Geno’s is unabashedly racist/ immigrant-unfriendly.
- Philliy is home to not 1 but THREE Iron Chefs - Masaharu Morimoto, Jose Garces and Bobby Flay. Also, for the Top Chef fans, we’re home to Kevin Sbraga’s namesake, Jen Carroll headed up Eric Ripert’s 10 Arts, and Grayson Schmitz is no stranger to many kitchens around here.
- If you call North Philly or Temple’s Campus “Templetown”, please just hand your wallet and fanny pack to the nearest stranger. If you take lists from Philadelphia Magazine very seriously, people will assume you are from the Main Line and are a jerk by default.
- Don’t be afraid to wander into a place that isn’t on OpenTable. Philly is highly noted for our BYOBs, which are generally fantastic and reasonably priced, since they don’t have to deal with liquor license overhead (the Liquor Control Board is operating out of the dark ages here, we’ve had to adapt). Many places are cash only, and may or may not have a corkage fee ($15-$25 is about average).
Yes to ALL of this because I know exactly how he feels. My heart goes to you Victor.
I’m sorry but I have to reblog.
I’ve done this before at joes crab shack. Allergy to shell fish but I ate crawfish anyway. The guy was like um…? And I was like “ignore me please.”
yes, yes, yes, motherfuckers come to my job talking ‘bout “do you have soy cheese, non-dairy milk, veggie options?” I’m like BITCH, this is the menu, if you don’t like it then leave!
he is so damn angry
*swear… but this is hilarious!
EVERY. DAMN. DAY.
I get phone calls all the time like “Do you have vegetarian or vegan menu options?” I am always sensitive to dietary restrictions but BITCH THIS IS A STEAKHOUSE. The whole joint smells like bacon. Why are you even coming here?! I worked at an Indian place before and I would get people who were allergic to spices. Like seasoning…. Why… just, the fuck for why?!
