Philadelphia REALLY needs to be known for something OTHER than cheesesteaks. Because really, it’s getting annoying.
You see, that’s all anyone mentions when I tell them I’ve moved to Philadelphia. I was on the phone turning off cable service for my old apartment when they asked me where I was moving. I said “Philadelphia”, to which the lady replied “Don’t eat too many cheesesteaks”… are you kidding me?
This wasn’t the end, oh no. Next up was a relative (I won’t say who in case they are reading this) who asked me if I had eaten any cheesesteaks yet. I mean, seriously. Of ALL the things to do in this city, why do we keep coming back to the cheesesteak? I don’t even LIKE steak, so the odds of me actually eating these things is slim to none.
So, the next time Philadelphia comes up in a conversation and you want to mention cheesesteaks, I beg of you, LET IT GO!
