If we wanted to start a pub crawl in philly right about now, where would you recommend we go?
Starting us anywhere the R6 lets off would be swell.
Cheap beer = awesome.

Many years ago, late one night in Philadelphia, I heard a cover of the Maple Leaf Rag that stunned me. I never found the artist, nor have I ever heard it again. I'm hoping the hivemind can help. It started out the traditional piano version, and then there was a pause... and it turned into a guitar rock version. I heard it on WMMR at about 1:30 AM in the late 1980s. HAs anyone ever heard of anything like it, and if so, who was the artist?

Anyone else in the Philadelphia area seeing this? There are some strange, vertical clouds in the area that look a lot like aurorae (it's well into darkness here), but they aren't moving. They look like they might be high-altitude noctilucent clouds, but I think it's the wrong time of year for those. What are they? I've never seen anything like them.

Flying into Philly next Tuesday around 530pm, then driving up to Bethlehem. I'd love to stop in Philly and grab a killer cheesesteak- but I'll have my family with me so I'd probably only be able to do this if its somewhat near the airport or on the way toward Allentown/Bethlehem/Easton.

Conshohocken, PA had a massive fire today at the Riverwalk Millenium Apartment/Condos. Luckily, from what we've seen there were no serious injuries, but the buildings look like they are a complete loss.
Friends were supposed to move in to one of the new apartments next week, and are now trying to find a similar living situation to get into by September. One will be working in Philly, the other in Bryn Mawr, they don't really know the area that well, and can't get back to PA until next week. They sort of fell into this lease because of a lucky coincidence, and need some help figuring out where else to look that would be similarly convenient, new and clean. $1500 per month would be the maximum they could afford for a one bedroom. Thanks for any help

What are some Bachelor Party options for Philadelphia on a Friday night?
"Adult Entertainment" is probably out (Atlantic City for the next night). We're looking for fun places that a group of 8 guys in mid 20s would enjoy (early 20s places are always an option). Bars, BYOBs for dinner, cheesy dance clubs. Probably looking for places where the dude ratio is relatively low. Staying in center city.

Stephen Colbert was just holding up a jersey on The Colbert Report (4/15) that was: part (1/4) Flyers jersey, part Sixers jersey, part Eagles jersey, and part Phillies jersey. Like a beautiful Philadelphia sports patchwork quilt jersey shirt. Can I buy this jersey? Does it exist outside of The Colbert Report?
