  • The Solid Northeast

    The Solid Northeast

    You know, K and I aren’t really “pride people.” We’re just not that kind of gay. You won’t find us carrying the sea-to-sea Key West pride flag, or attending the Philly Pride parade, or dancing on a float, or anything like that. We’re totally proud of who we are, and we’re glad that we were […]

    What a Letdown!

    Philly Christmas Favorites

    With the holiday season now firmly in full swing, I thought I’d put together a new post that summarizes why December is my favorite non-summer time of year in Philadelphia. For the holidays, the City of Brotherly Love pulls out all the stops and is a really great destination for everyone in the northeast corridor. […]
