Have you been to Cart yet?

According to Good Grief’s sophisticated user preference tracking algorithm, readers who enjoy fake art reviews will also enjoy Phreaking Philly’s review of Cart, a popular BYO in Old City: Cart is a charming, unassuming BYO that offers little in the way of interior design, but bags of potato chips clipped to its industrial-nuevo structure provide […]

I was there in spirit

I was there in spirit

Everyone was at Fergies on Saturday, along with Strolling Luna and her creepy x-ray camera. True, I wouldn’t mind losing that holiday weight, but I was thinking more like a few inches off the hips.
