Eating Our Way Through Reading Terminal Market

After a morning spent touring a mere fraction of Philadelphia’s 3,500 public murals, our feet were tired and our stomachs were rumbling. The murals had been a visual feast, but, by 1 o’clock, we were ready for a feast of a different kind: one that most definitely involved some hands-on, interactive elements. read more »

Embrace the Fine Art of Dining

On a recent trip to San Francisco, my husband and I wanted to check out the final days of Richard Serra’s exhibition at SFMOMA. We popped in, took a look around the atrium and caught a glimpse high above of a flickering grid of tiny lights before a kind employee politely told us the museum wasn’t open for the day. Lucky for us, the museum’s restaurant was open, and we were starving. We decided to eat an early lunch in Caffé Museo before submerging ourselves in art. After all, one must be properly fueled to fully appreciate art. read more »

Historic waterfronts in many cities transitioned from gritty transportation hubs to dynamic tourist attractions in the latter part of the 20th century.
