Follow in the footprints of today's political heavyweights and pundits for a taste (literally) of the city of Brotherly Love.
Feeling adventurous? Head to Donkey’s Place—in a sorta-sketchy part of Camden that Anthony Bourdain dubbed “the best.” President Obama went for lemon "wudder ice" at John's Water Ice in South Philly a few years back, but only after the Secret Service did a full inspection of the family-owned joint, which is about the size of a two-car garage.
Anderson Cooper and Philly’s own Jake Tapper just may be among the crowd at the nation’s oldest press haunt, Pen & Pencil Club. (Who needs Champagne-fueled formal cocktail parties anyway?) The P&P is famously known for its hot dogs, but it’s a safe bet Cooper and Tapper will politely pass.
Bill Clinton was known to order 20 or 30 cheese steaks to go from Pat’s King of Steaks and take them aboard Air Force One. He’s a vegan now, so he may have to just watch Hillary eat hers.
The Donald was in town recently for daughter Tiffany’s graduation from Penn—too bad he missed Dock Street Brewery’s springtime batch of Short-Fingered Stout, which disappeared as quickly as the Dems hope Trump will.
