My visits to Philly this summer have been packed with festivals, colorful art, and lobsters! Take a little peek below.
First up, the Italian Market Festival.
The Strawberry Festival in Peddler’s Village. We heard a lady at the strawberry stand proudly declaring, “No, these are not local! The local strawberries were terrible this year.” They were just selling Driscoll’s for $5/pint. Not sure that’s a selling point…
Love the little bar graph these kids are making. And sure enough, after the festival we went to the grocery store down the street, where they were selling the same Driscoll’s strawberries for $2 less. Sold, thanks!
Over to Colman and Amaris’ for barbecue, with their brand new pup BB!
Like a tiny wolf baby.
I’m a proud new member of the Philadelphia Art Museum! They offer “Artists Memberships” for just $40/year.
Over in their contemporary arts “Perelman Building,” the “Creative Africa” exhibit comprising five galleries on African art.
The “Colorscape” installation. So many colorful strings!
More on the architecture of Francis Kéré in a whole exhibit on creative architecture and design solutions.
Adorable alley moment.
Back again in July for some lobsters! Two for $28 at Oyster House on Wednesdays. We shared one “twin lobsters” meal the first time and then went back the next week to get two lobsters each.
Also, the Democratic National Convention was in town!
Cheers to summertime Philly! I’ll be back again very soon.
