Memorial Day in Philadelphia was nice and quiet. The weather turned out to be beautiful and warm, we didn't have plans or reservations. As soon as we arrived to Philly we headed out to the Headhouse Farmer's Market to see how it was. Got some coffee and walked around the beautiful area of Society Hill enjoying the sun and pretty streets. Then we decided to have lunch at our regular spot in the Gayborhood: Knock. Once again, service was outstanding and Bellinis delicious.
Around 3pm we were able to check-in to our hotel in Center City, the Sofitel where we stayed once before. We got a good last minute price on one of their corner suites and relaxed for a little bit while waiting for our friends to come to town so we could head out to dinner at Alma De Cuba. I would've taken some photos of their culinary creations, but the restaurant was really dark. I always get the same dish (the only vegetarian option on the menu): Crisp Rice And Black Lentil Cake curried vegetable stew, carrot chimichuri & chayote squash salad, which was delicious.
The second day we explored the historic areas of Philadelphia which we've actually never done before. Oh Philly, you're the best! Hope to come back very soon!
