I had an opportunity to explore Philly just a few short weeks after my last visit, so I took it! There is always something more to see and do and, more importantly, to eat! I headed to Blackbird Pizza, which is in Society Hill.
One of my most favorite foods is hot wings. And they are even more delicious now that I’m not gnawing meat off a bone (yuk!). The creamy cucumber dip that accompanied these delicious habanero spiced wings was a perfect match!
I’ve had many a cheesesteak in my previous life (before vegan) so I was a little reluctant to try a vegan one. It was incredible!! Rosemary and garlic seared seitan, grilled onions and green bell peppers, melted Daiya cheese on a hoagie. My mouth is watering just looking at the photo!
Now that my belly was full, I headed off to Independence Hall to see the Liberty Bell. It’s free to get in, which is outstanding in this day and age. I think it’s symbolic that I happen to be finishing up this blog on Martin Luther King day. I am truly grateful for the liberties I have because of those that have gone before me.
I love this quote from abolitionist, Frederick Douglass, which is hanging in Independence Hall.
Douglass was a firm believer in the equality of all people, whether black, female, Native American, or recent immigrant, famously quoted as saying, “I would unite with anybody to do right and with nobody to do wrong.”
On my way back to my hotel, I walked through Washington Square Park where I noticed a nice lady feeding the birds.
Then this happened!!
It made me chuckle! I hope you did too!! Good day!!
