I am: guitarist, brother
Years in Philly: solidly on till I was 18, now fleetingly (and usually in the wee hours)

My love note: Center City Pretzels is where a piece of my childhood was baked. They’re only open from midnight–noon, the pretzels you buy are literally coming right off the conveyor belt (its a factory) for maximum heat and goodness, and they’re just 35 cents. Perfect for the wee hours of the night or morning.
