Philly – Vedge Restaurant – One word review: Amazing.

I wasn’t sure we’d manage to visit Vedge Restaurant on this trip. JC was busy doing gaming stuff, and it was not an experience I’d want to have without him.  But luckily, he finished with enough time to spare, and while we couldn’t make a reservation, we managed to snag Vedge’s walk-in table. From the […]

Philadelphia Trip – In the Beginning – Govinda’s and Sweet Freedom

We arrived in Philadelphia bright and early on Saturday morning, taking the overnight bus from Toronto starting at 7pm.

Vegan MoFo on the Road – Coming home post Sandy.

On Saturday a friend from New York came to visit me in Philly. It […]

Philly Day Two – More walk, less eat.

My second day in Philly was definitely more of an on foot exploration than a destination based exercise. But I did have a few places on my mind when I headed out. In the morning I walked over to The Academy of Natural Sciences (1900 Benjamin Franklin Parkway, Philadelphia, PA), snapped a few photos, picked […]

Philadelphia Day One – eating in a very wander-able city.

I had planned on doing a blog post planning out my trip to Philly, but here I am in Philly, and no nicely organized trip plan was written up. Besides a scratched up piece of notebook paper, I didn’t do much planning at all. Although I’m regretting not writing one up during last years Vegan […]

Last Road Trip of 2010 – First real stop: Philly Cheese-steak

We left Toronto bright and early at 6am, and found our way to Philadelphia at around 3pm. It was a long drive over, with very few stops, a few terrifying moments, and the usual road related fun. I was excited to be in Philadelphia because it was my first visit, and I’ve always wanted to […]
