Tonight I’m in Philadelphia.

It’s so great when I end up with a fun and fantastic flight crew, and that’s precisely what happened! Very happy to be working this three-day trip with Anthony and Jeanette! I’ve worked with both of them in the past, but it’s been a while.

After we checked into the hotel, we quickly changed into our “normal people” clothes and met down in the lobby to find some dinner. Anthony suggested cheesesteaks (when in Rome…), and we ended up in some restaurant that starts with a ‘C.’ It wasn’t quite as good as Jim’s, which is where I usually go, but the fact that we were together as a crew made it even better.

Next, we walked down to a candy shop called Shane Confectionery, also Anthony’s suggestion. This candy shop was so excellent! It was like stepping back in time! I asked Chrissy, one of the girls working behind the counter, if she would sing to us like they do on Willy Wonka, but she wouldn’t. Even without Chrissy’s vocal stylings, it was such a great place!

All this goodness, and the only thing I bought was a piece of chocolate-covered bacon!
