Everyone has their safe space.
Maybe you like to take a time-out at Rittenhouse Square when the office feels like it’s closing in. Or perhaps you find peace in your garden at the end of a long day. Yoga studios are popular, as are churches, temples, synagogues, mosques and other buildings where vampires aren’t welcome (or aren’t usually welcome — it all depends which season of Supernatural you’re watching).
No doubt, you’ve noticed the monstrosity that is the huge, multi-level, glass-encased Cheesecake Factory, set to open today at 15th and Walnut Streets. Just in case eating one of those 800-calorie pieces of cheesecake wasn’t enough, you can now do it while being surrounded by panoramic city views! We started thinking: Wouldn’t it be much better if the desserts at Cheesecake Factory were named after gay Philly people and organizations? We took a stab at re-creating the sweet menu below, and hope you have a few laughs while trying to decide which cake you want to try.
Perhaps while you were out of town for the long weekend, the Cheesecake Factory signs were installed at 15th and Walnut Streets. The signs are the latest indication that Center City Philadelphia will be getting its own outpost of the national chain. The Philadelphia Cheesecake Factory is scheduled to open on Tuesday, June 23rd.
Cheesecake Factory joins Fado, Applebee’s, Fox and Hound and Howl at the Moon along the stretch of 15th Street between Walnut and Spruce Streets.
Stay strong Good Dog, Jose Pistola’s, the Treemont and McGlinchey’s. Stay strong.
