Thanksgiving in Philadelphia 2003

"A Gastronomical Extravaganza!"

Back to PHOTO page

This year Leah and I spent a long Thanksgiving weekend back in Philadelphia, "City of Brotherly Love." And what better way to spend it than with my brother Bob and family. Highlights of our trip included spending a day in downtown Philly, sampling foods that you just can't get here in Denver: REAL Geno's Cheesesteaks, soft pretzels from a corner stand, hoagies, TastyKakes, and the list just keeps growing (and so does my belly!). To mark this gastronomic tour, I decided to give you a 1st person account of the many tastes of Philly, along with family photos, a day trip to Atlantic City, and a stop at my 20th High School Reunion, too. Enjoy!
