I am an artist and certified couch surfer. I have hosted travelers from most of the globe and I seem to have done my job at keeping them entertained with whimsy and delightful Philly secrets. I try to illustrate the non Liberty Bell - Cheesesteak offerings. I try to mix it up with house music, burlesque shows, fringe art performances comedy and little spaces where one can breathe in noise and lights. Then there is the food. Oh boy Philadelphia is in the national spotlight where restaurants and bars are exploding and the options are dizzying. It is the best wild west scenario where established restauranteurs open pet projects and younger ones are eager to show them up.
Last but not least.
**The city wide special. A PBR and shot o'whiskey $
The simple act of seeing a small-medium-large band/DJ next to some seriously tasty food, possibly near an independent art gallery, down the street from a local comedy club is not a long shot.
Having a worldwide presence, everyone knows "Philly". Just off the hype radar allows us the luxury of space to roam and affordability. You can eat some sort of gastro experiment that blows your socks off before or after an unknown band just did the same thing to your earhole. Then there is the obvious history and Amazing world class art collections. The Barnes, Rodin, Rocky steps...wait no...I mean The Art museum are self explanatory and I would focus my skills elsewhere to give that perfect balance.
