Around the area called the Independence National Historical Park are many buildings. Some are small and others, like the Philadelphia Bourse are large “modern” multi-storey buildings.
The Philadelphia Bourse was the first commodities exchange in America. Today, it is just an office building and also a place where tourist had food in their visit to the Independence National Historic Park.
They have a good variety of choices with the Box Lunch Program where for a few bucks you can pick up burgers, sandwiches, fried chickens and almost every kind of take aways you could think of.
We went to a sit down place called the Philly’s Gourmet Cafe. This place is meant to cater to the hoard of tourists with a huge variety of food choices.
You get to pick what you want and they charge you by the weight of the food.
I like breakfasts like this because I get to choose only the amount I want. I also had a piece of Bourbon Chicken because it looked so delish. I had never come across a place like this in Vancouver — anyone know of one?
I had no idea how this works. They charges solely by the weight of the food. Suanne and I tried to figure out what would give us the best value for money.
Coffee is not by weight though.
The picture above is just out of place but I like it so much I thought I stick it here. I want to go into a tirade on the importance The First Amendment is but I’ll leave it to you guys to just read it for yourself. It’s late for me … gotta hit the sack right after publishing this post.
