Winter happenings.

Alan's parents were in town this past Saturday and we decided to bring them to Dilworth Park/Christmas Village at City Hall. The seasonal pop-up parks (like Christmas Village in the Winter and Spruce St. Harbor in the Summer) are one of my favorite things about Philadelphia. They're so much fun! Drinks, games, food, shopping-- they have it all.

We also had Percy Street Barbecue on South Street for lunch. Now, I'm not a fan of barbecue, yet I still stuffed my face at this place. That says a lot. I'd suggest going with a group of 3-5 people and ordering "The Lockhart". It's $25 per person, but it lets you sample a variety of meats, as it comes with brisket, chicken (the rub is out of this world), ribs, collard greens, burnt end beans (ah-mazing), german potato salad (deliciously spicy!) and coleslaw. The portions are also very generous. Even with four big eaters at the table, we still brought home leftovers.

Beer can Christmas Tree inside Percy St BBQ. Genius idea.

There are no pictures of food because we literally began to chomp down on food the second it arrived at our table. A good thing, really!

And thus began a weekend of indulgent eating -- Han Dynasty for dinner with good friends on Saturday night and Seasons 52 for brunch on Sunday morning with Amanda and some of her bridesmaids crew. More to come!
