maybe next year?
Have a happy, snow filled Super Bowl Sunday.
Someday we will get the birds back to the big game. Just not today.
At least we have the commercials to root for.
Here is one of my favorites!

maybe next year?

Yep. Love me some Slaw... Funkslaw that is. The Slaw is a pretty hot band in the liberty town right now. Despite a world of Boybands, GaGa women, and the next American Idol craze (I love this guy)...Funkslaw brings it back to the basics. The Slaw hits a note that reminds me of past greats like The Dead, Dylan, or The Band, but offers a cool contemporary spin. The Slaw is pretty much a time capsule filled of awesome that the city has been waiting for. God knows I have. I miss good music.
The local music scene in Philly as of late is pretty amazing. Bands like The Capitol Years, Funkslaw and Jealousy Curve light up the stage at great old and new venues like The Khyber, Johnny Brendas, World Cafe Live and of course, the Troc. You can find Funkslaw live on Feb 6 at the Troc so get out and support the bands that make this city Philly cool.
Here is a side dish of Funkslaw right here. Get a scoop today.
Pants on the ground.

Touch down in Fairmount Park...
The new Please Touch Museum is a pretty happening place for kids. I took Ethan there not too long ago and was very impressed with the new digs. A clear upgrade from the previous version that lived on the parkway. And with the new park location, it has become a new Philly destination and landmark.
Go give it a touch for yourself.

old city charm
Man I love the buildings in old city. Especially on north 3rd street. It doesn't get much cooler than this. Someday I'll buy one of these places. For now, I'll just keep taking pictures. Old city is pretty much Philly's soho...but better, it's Philly cool.

Take a stroll down 2nd street in Northern Liberties and you'll end up at the latest "place to be" in the city... the Piazza at Schmidts. The Piazza is an 80,000 square-foot, open-air plaza with free events year-round. It is filled with artists' studios, cool boutiques and four bars/restaurants. The space is inspired by the famous meeting areas in Italy and is just an awesome and unique place to hang. Yes, that IS a giant tv screen showing the WFC's right on the wall. This guy likes to play around here as well.
I guess if you like it a lot, you can live here with 3 condo buildings surrounding the whole thing. Get all the info you need at www.atthepiazza.com or check out this little video.

the wind beneath my wings..
Well, despite what you think about this guy being a part of the birds, you have to be happy that today the Eagles won their first game of the season in convincing manner. On the other hand, we saw McNabb go down. Will he be back next week? Will we see a certain #7 take a snap or two soon? Time will tell.
Next week... it starts at our house as pictured above. Get ready for the parking lot. Stay classy Philly!
Still...I so miss this guy.

so are the championship days of our lives
Phillies pride has no boundaries. See this amazing sand sculpture in Franklin Square Park, right by Ben's big blue bridge. It's a great place for kids (note the ferris wheel), or to pay homage to the team that broke the curse.
Let's go fightens!!!!!!
