    Duchamp exhibition at the Philadelphia Art Museum? You can always run up the steps if you are not into art. Don't miss the Rodin Museum a few blocks away, too.

    You must go see the Barnes Collection, a new museum (well relocated from the suburbs) that exhibits an incredible private collection of Impressionism Art along with folk Art and Iron works. A museum with a presentation unlike anything you've seen.

    There are many, many great restaurants in Philly. If you like Spanish tapas, Amada is a must.

    For Mediterranean, try Valanni, a gay nite-clubby restaurant that's fun, energetic(yes noisy) but has good food.

    The gayborhood is between 13th & 11th Streets from Chestnut, Walnut, Locust & Spruce where 13 gay clubs & bars are mostly located. A lot of great restaurants on 13th Street like Barbuzzo, Lolita's, El Vez a block away from Woody's Gaybar & Dance Club where I bartended for 21 yrs icon_smile.gif Knock is on corner 12th & Locust, restaurant owned by Bill Wood who use to own Woody's. Def see the Duchamp, Cage, Cunningham, Johns, Rauchenberg Dancing around The Bride exhibit @ PMA runs thru Jan 21st & The Barnes relocated on the Parkway. All parts of Philly is filled with lots of great restaurants. Checkout Rittenhouse Square area, Center City, Old City, South Street. Most of the high end shops are on Walnut & Chestnut going west from Broad St. The Holiday Inn Express Midtown is right across from Woody's on 13th & Walnut, save on cabs icon_smile.gif Enjoy...... icon_smile.gif
