For the next four days, I am staying at the Philadelphia Marriott right next to Reading Terminal – attending the American College of Physicians annual meeting at the convention center. Last time I was here was 2000, and we ate lunch daily at the Terminal while others in my group set out for the food court at the Gallery at Market East so they could have "chain food" instead. I’ll never understand it…
Last time I was here we had a very good dinner at Dock Street Brewery, which seems to have disappeared (?) I’m a big microbrew fan, thanks to Cleveland’s Great Lakes Brewing Co. We’re trying to decide between a place called Monk’s Cafe (Belgian Beer Emporium and Restaurant) or Nodding Head Brewery and Restaurant. I also think there’s a microbrew in the Terminal, but can’t remember the name.
Any other suggestions for Philly would be appreciated. I’ll check back over the next couple days.
