Stuffs to Do

Only five months to go before I leave! I've made a list of to-eat to-do things that I need to hit before I leave Philadelphia.

First additions, not food-related:
*I really need to go to a Phillies game in the new ballpark.

*I've never been to the Atwater Kent museum. Heck, I don't even know if it's that good of a museum; but it's here, and it's about the history of the city, and I really ought to know something about that history...

More to be added later.
