Frequently Asked Questions
Challenge: To try all of the “239 Dishes You Must Eat Now”, as featured in the January 2010 issue of Philadelphia Magazine.
I chose to do this because I fell in love with Philly while interning last summer. I am an analyst from North Jersey, and it seemed to be the perfect opportunity to get to know Philly better while eating some great food, accomplishing a goal, and having some adventures along the way.
Questions I Wasn’t Expecting But Keep Receiving:
YOU’RE NOT FAT?! No, I am not. Thank you. HOW?! I’m not really into food. It’s a common misconception.
SO, YOU AND JEFFERS…? No.
SO, YOU AND GUSTAV…? I apologize for the confusion. No.
SO, YOU ARE DATING…WHOM? Fear not, fair aunts, someday you will have grand-nieces and grand-nephews. But not for a while.
HOW CAN YOU AFFORD ALL OF THIS? My family and friends help me out. And a Villanovan education prepares students to effectively budget shenanigans into their finances.
HOW DO YOU HAVE THE TIME? My mom is a morning person, and my dad is a night person. I am both. And my posterior is a bit bony so that makes it difficult for me to sit still for extended periods of time.
DO YOU COOK, TOO? Not since the Great Pancetta Incident of 2008, in which I set off the fire alarms for my entire 80-unit building. Nowadays, I stick to toast and baking cookies.
FAVORITE PLACE SO FAR? Right now, I LOVE Supper on South Street. Tracy and I will be enjoying Sunday brunch there more regularly once I convince her to move to Philly.
CAN I COME ON ONE OF YOUR ADVENTURES? Yes, if you pass my top-secret Test of Non-Sketchiness.
