r u ready? Mark your calendars, ladies - Filthy's Club Body Center which was tragically gutted in a mysterious fire last year is about to reopen -- new name, new owner! I walked by this afternoon and saw the new signs: http://clubphilly.com/Club_Philly/Countdown.html

If you enjoy being jacked up on meth, hanging from a sling, and being fisted for hours this is your kind of place! And as a bonus there's an HIV testing center around the corner and also our largest HIV clinic a block away. I just hope they did a full scale restoration of The Bear Room. Oh, and don't you just love how even our bath houses are in historic colonial era buildings?

Actually ACI is the place to go in SA, it has less bedbugs than Executive. However they are currently battling a Syph outbreak (spring has sprung!). But hey there's alot of huge hung uncut spanish only speaking cock there, If that's your thing

The only Bathhouse I've ever been to was   Midtown Spa in Austin . and that was only because my buddy DJ'd there after hours on Sudnay morning and I would have to bring him coke, Although I think I got a hj in the sauna room from a UT student.

SA just looks like a large suburb and void of character. I bet the Alamo is actually made of fiberglass.

They are actually sprucing the Alamo grounds up! They have kicked all the Pinata and Hotdog vendors off the hallowed area in front of the main door.  ;)

I had to look up what Krystal's is -- looks similar to White Castle, though since White Castle was the first fast food place this just ripped them off 80 years ago. They removed all of the White Castles from Filthy 15 years ago so I only get fresh ones when I go back to Brooklyn. I had a White Castle two blocks away from that apartment! Open 24/7 too! And it was full of 110% sketch.

I went to a Captain D's back in the 80's with my grandmother and it seemed just like LJS's -- meaning lame.

Told you this would happen -- remember the derelict topless bar two blocks below me that was being revitalized into a hipster topless bar? It's now #3 in the list of "Best Places" in the city, and only after being open a month.

... not that I've gone or anything ::) ???

But if you scroll backwards and look at the #1 place -- The Trestle Inn, you will see that the dumpier the place looks the cooler the crowd is that goes there. This is just how we roll in Filthydelphia. We embrace the filth. However at least at the Trestle once you go inside it's not a dump and they have bison meatloaf sandwiches on the menu.

Child please. Every place in the Northeast has done the filth-as-hipster thing since the first time I went to the 9:30 Club in DC as a 17 year old. You were pushing out babies until you were 37 and you're going to lecture me on night clubbing? Seriously?

It's sad how you can't follow your own argument and when you make false statements you then attempt to move the goalposts. You're either a moron or intentionally obtuse, take your pick.

Or hung over.

Or bloated from donut consumption.

Of your obviously sexless date? If it makes you happy to think so, sure. In fact, I'm not even sure you got more than tipsy last night if you're up so early tappin' away on your keyboard. I know I wouldn't be.

I was so upset last night that I assembled a collection of digital photos of Wumpella and turned it into screensaver slideshow for my computer. I thought it might be good for masturbation but I'm having trouble getting hard.

Guess I'll go back to watching Marshall from seancody.com

I bet you don't live near a Hipster Dive Bar that serves cheesesteak tacos and has nightly drag shows, now do you? $3 Pabst-and-Jim Beam combo ftw though I prefer an IPA and Jameson shot combo personally.

Also, super large cocks (what in the world is a "slurp ramp"?). And you gotta love how they're putting an in-house STD testing facility on the third floor. So progressive! I LUV PHILLY!

cheesesteak tacos with cheez whiz?
what is up with Philly and their love of canned fake cheese anyway?
I checked it out online to see if it was authentic or just served for the tourists.
From the mouths of your fellow Phillodelfinos, it seems to get a mixed response.

ps- slurp ramps are in season now, silly. :)

Oh yes, it's either Whiz or real provolone. And if you want it with Whiz you place your order by only saying "whiz wit". I know you'll gag but they're actually better in terms of texture with Whiz. I think the whiz issue came about because the cheesesteak places came about in the 1950's at the same time that whiz first came on the market.

There's a local sandwich that's actually better than a cheesesteak and that's our roast pork, provolone and broccoli rabe. Cheesesteaks are geared to the tourists.

Yes, that was on the Travel Channel's "Man vs. Food" and it competed in a taste test with 20 or so other sandwiches. It was specifically the version sold at DiNic's, Reading Terminal Market.

OUCH!
just checked on dinner and burned my tender finger on the pan lid.
I keep forgetting pan lids get hot in the oven. ::) :P

my brain is out to lunch once again.

anyway...
have you eaten the winning sandwich and more importantly did it deserve the prize?

I've eaten it but it's been a while since I did so. The place has huge lines now because of that show so it may be a while before I can sample it again. Reading Terminal Market is now more visited than Independence Hall when you combine it with the locals who also shop there. It's not just ready-to-eat stalls at RTM but also produce stands, fish mongers, butchers etc. But it can become so crowded during tourist season that you don't want to be there. I go more in the winter it seems.

There are tons of other equally good sandwich places. For roast pork ones there's also John's Roast Pork but since I don't have a car it involves taking the bus, but it's only maybe 15 or so blocks east so doable. It's a dumpy concrete shack with no indoor seating though, but it's also always  on those cooking channel shows. Click on the video in that link and you'll recall that it was also on that same sandwich competition, but for their cheesesteak not for the roast pork.

This is my favorite place for sandwichs in general: http://www.paesanosphillystyle.com/

It's been on both Bourdain's and Bobby Flay's TV shows. I often order the "Gustaio" there which has home-made lamb sausage as the meat, but they also have a good version of the roast pork they call the "Arista" -- click on the menu section. Supposedly the chicken liver sandwich is to die for but I don't care for chicken liver. This place has also become annoyingly crowded. Miss P discovered it years ago before it was on any TV show. I'd go in there and there would be maybe only one or two seats full.

You roast a pork shoulder every week. Go buy some fucking fish for a change. And I don't mean Gorton's fish sticks or a Fish-Fil-A from Micky D's drive through.

I thought the menu looked rather tasty myself. They even have gourmet versions of those atrocious pickled eggs that I always make fun of with Ann. Evidently this place just opened last month.

oh I missed that.

Let's go there when I visit, wont you be able to bring a guest for free with your VIP membership? I must find out what a Slurp Ramp is! Then we can trot up stairs and get tested for STD's and act surprised when they tell us we are poz.

But then laugh at them by saying we're walking ten blocks west to the Adonis Theater/Samson Bath House with a pit stop on the way for artisinal double-fried chicken with chili-garlic glaze and lavender strawberry donuts!

You'll have to do the talking so I don't bust out laughing between "artisinal" and "lavender strawberry"..

*** BREAKING NEWS *** Philadelphia, one of 11 US municipalities, receives a perfect "100" score from Human Rights Campaign for their Municipal Equality Index, which ranks cities based on laws and policies affecting the local LGBT community.

Rankings were based  on 47  criteria divided into six broad categories: non-discrimination laws, relationship recognition,  employment practices, inclusiveness of city services, law enforcement and municipal leadership.

Overall, 137 cities were ranked, including all 50 state capitals and the 50 most populous cities in America, as well as the cities with the highest proportions of same-sex couples.

Out of the 137 municipalities, 11 received a perfect score of 100: Boston, New York, Los Angeles, Philadelphia, San Diego, San Francisco, Seattle, St. Louis, Long Beach, Portland, OR, and Cambridge, MA.


Oddly neither Birmingham nor San Antonio fare quite so well. SAD!
