On October 18, 2012, we went on the 9th Street Italian Market Tour. Our guide was Bob. Ivan and I were on the tour with two older people.
We went all around the Italian market. Bob didn’t seem too much. We got to try gelato at Anthony’s Gelato. Ivan and I also tried a chocolate covered potato chip.
We stopped at Fante’s Kitchen Store and Di Bruno Bros. where we tried a nice cheese spread and parmesian reggiano with a balsamic vinegar. I wouldn’t recommend this tour.
The tour stopped near Geno’s and Pat’s which are THE places to get a Philly cheesesteak.
Ivan and I thought that I should try the original. I had a Philly cheesesteak at Pat’s while Ivan had a crab cake sandwich. The Philly cheesesteak tasted good.
Later, we did a wonderful Free and Friendly walking tour. The guide Mike was very interesting. We walked around City Hall and saw the organ at Macy’s.
There was a short break at the Reading Terminal Market.
The group stopped at Friends Center which is run by the Quakers.
Our last stop on the tour was Love Park.
The water in the fountain was dyed blue for fallen police officers. You should do this great tour.
That night, we went to Hummus. We each got a hummus, chickpea and avocado salad to go.
We ate our salad during the Alex Cross movie. The movie was alright.
