Philly Day 3 – Cars, Halo and Cheesesteaks

So Day 3 started off in a European manner, with a classic Irish breakfast of Soda Farl at Ida Mae’s Bruncherie. For those who haven’t had this before, it is a breakfast sandwich of eggs, suasages and ham on soda bread slices. Very tasty and also very hearty, actually didn’t need to have lunch.

After breakfast Jaime and I took his car in to get the brakes looked at (the car was making a weird rocking motion when braking). We killed time by stopping at Game Stop and picked up Halo 3 for his XBOX. Took some time to go visit cousins in New Jersey and picked up the car afterwards.

Finally, came time to make the brave the streets and get my cheesesteak. We decided to go to Pat’s King of Steaks, one of the two main places people go for cheesesteak. (Gino’s, the other option, was nice but the neon was a little too Vegas) We got to Pat’s at the same time as the crowds from the Phillies game were arriving so we had a little wait (line wrapped around the building), but in the end it was worth it! Sandwich was great and the accompanying fries were also great.

Finally we headed back to Jaime’s and chilled out in the evening with Halo and Jaime’s kegerator (serving Walt’s Wit from Philadelphia Brewing Company). The pictures below are in a nice slideshow created at Rockyou.com.
