    Me and the Mrs. will be in Philly for the Seahawks game on December 6th. My awesome friend and best man bought us game tickets, airline tickets and two nights at the Omni Hotel at Independence Park. Should be awesome. Any OGs nearby?

    Sounds like a lot of fun, and you've got one hell of a best man and friend. Mine got me a bottle of Jack Daniels and I woke up on my buddies bathroom floor.

    You have an equally good best man then.

    Congrats on getting married, but wait as long as you can. You're still young.

    Tony Lukes > Ginos and Pats,

    Just sayin.

    China Town isn't to bad in Philly it's 10 times better than the joke that is DC China Town which isn't saying much.
    I hate Steven singer, store is in Philly, it's the company that has been advertising on Howard stern the longest of anyone. It's a cool store that gives customers beer, or at least did when I was there. but their prices are IMO like any other store front jewelry store. Too much.

    That's about all I can say about Philly, sorry you are there for 3 days, Philly for me is a day trip kind of place, hopefully no one kicks your ass if you wear a seahawks jersey, Philly Fans are no joke, I'm serous, be careful!

    That's true, don't they have a jail, and a judge in the stadium?

    Dont get me started on that shitty city and their shittier fans. Go to the game. Spend the other days in NYC and Baltimore.

    Baltimore has very distinct lines of where youll get robbed and where you wont.

    As far as what to do, if youre into touristy stuff, the inner harbor is pretty sweet. Aquarium and what not. Night life you have powerplant. Think a mini mall, but instead of stores, you have bars. There is also Federal Hill, specifically Cross Street that has some of the best bars Ive ever been to. Its out of season, but you can also usually catch an Os game for $20. Then on Sundays its brunch at Little Havana for food and bottomless mimosas/bloody maries. Brunch? Yes. Dont judge brunch until you do one with the rest of Baltimore.

    the last time i was in Baltimore was about 8-10 years ago and i was thoroughly impressed to see that drug dealers still worked corners out there
    the lazy fuckers around here stopped working corners in the mid 90s

    I live 25 minutes from Baltimore and 25 minutes from DC. I can easily spend days in DC. Baltimore I'm happy to grab a bite and walk the inner harbor or fells point. It's a good night trip. But a day? Nah about as good as philly minus some of the trash.

    Air and space museum can easily eat up half a day. EASILY. Then there a handful of others worth visiting. Night scene... PowerPlant fucking sucks balls VS DC.

    What do you guys think of the Liberty Bell, Franklin House, etc? The hotel he put us in is pretty much right there. Probably take a cab to the game. Stadium is about 4 miles away.

    this thread is lulz.

    if you want nice stuff to do in Baltimore, stick to the inner harbor or fells point (fells point is better and less touristy, Canton and Fed Hill are OK too depending where you are). stay the fuck out of west Baltimore.

    Philly. Center City, Chinatown, Penns Landing are good places to be. stay the fuck out of north Philly. Philly has a lot of good places to eat in the areas I've mentioned.

    Philly has quite a few JDM importer warehouses. Always interesting to take a walk around and see what sort of interesting stuff they have in stock if you are into that sort of thing.
    Those visits can get expensive quick though.
