4 Years ago: ...I posted about lunch in Philly for the first time (at Rangoon). Since then I have over 1,000 published posts, most of them relating to things I've eaten. That's a lot of food. I hope I've helped make your lunch hours more exciting. Please keep reading, there is still a lot more fat and carbs to come!

Worst Week Ever: So not only do I have a sprained wrist, Eater is reporting that New Harmony bakery- my spot for yogurt pop-  has closed. Why is the whole world against me!!!!!

The Sprain in my Game…: So, my bike tire got caught in the trolley rail on 11th st and I fell on my arm. We think it's a sprain. I can only type with one hand, so forgive me if I am lacking in posts this week. I also crushed the freshly made tortilla chips I was bringing home. Two tragedies.
