I spent my weekend in Philadelphia for the wedding of a good friend from law school. Unfortunately, as a result, I missed the monthly cleanup and the Shiloh forum on gentrification, as well as all of the other happenings in Shaw. I imagine photos from the cleanup will soon be posted here. Read stories about the meeting here and here.
While I'd been several times before, I really fell in love with Philadelphia to this weekend. The center city is such a neat place to shop, to eat, and to people watch. Just a short trainride or 2.5 hour car trip away, I want to go back soon.
