Christmas gift giving was successful and New Years Eve was over. Happy Year! Our good friend Jack lived in the neighborhood so we managed to inspire him to brave the cold and join us, leaving Susan at home sick (sorry honey!)
Another find from an internet search, we discovered an official Philly hidden bar — Fiume. We loved everything about this surprising little pub, out of sight on the second floor, above a corner African restaurant, Abyssinia. Abyssinia’s bar was nearly empty and Fiume was packed! Every table and seats at the bar were filled even though it was winter break and the college kids were gone.
The gregarious bartender explained that they had 120 bottled brews and 40 whiskeys available, which was a mind game to figure out where they hid all of it. Jack entertained us with stories of Michigan and his hi-jinks as a tree surgeon in his youth.
