Weekend Philly Tales Recap

After being powered by ENERGYbits and running 5 miles on Saturday, it was time to kick back and enjoy the beautiful spring like weather.  Here’s a recap of the places I stopped to rehydrate and refuel after a weekend of running through the City of Brotherly Love….

photo-101Brunch or lunch? A little of both!  Catfish Po’ Boy for my running partner and Eggs Bednark for me.  The Bednark is served with kielbasy instead of the traditional ham, a nod to the Polish neighborhood where the Memphis Taproom is located.  Amazing!

After brunch/lunch we headed to Frankford Hall, a Stephen Starr modern German Biergarten.  The weather was picture perfect for hoisting a stein or two of Hofbrau Dunkel Lager and Bitbuger Phils while meeting new friends ’round the outdoor fire pit.  Prost!

If I’m in Fishtown, I can’t leave without a stop at my favorite bakery…

Stock’s famous pound cake is coming home with me to celebrate my baby’s 23rd birthday tomorrow.

Good Morning Sunday!  Glorious day for the wearing of the green and a spectacular view of City Hall.

Today’s exercise – walking in the St. Patrick’s Day Parade with my favorite Donegal Leprechaun…Slainte!

So after a wonderful weekend of eating and drinking my way through Philly, a much needed 4 mile run is on tap for Monday morning at 5:00 a.m.  Good night!

    Looks like a PERFECT Sunday 🙂 as you know, i heart Memphis Taproom. I hope to get out for a run Monday too – but not at 5 a.m. — it’s going to be dark & chilly willy!
