Philly’s More Holiday Fun

Holiday Fun
The Greater Philadelphia Tourism Marketing Corporation is doing a holidays promotion starting today. In addition to getting $50 off any hotel booking (tell the in-laws they’re not crashing on your couch this year) they also have a gift guide with 50 Philly gifts and a google map detailing all 50 gifts. And even better, one lucky person gets to win all 50 gifts.

And as you might expect, there are plenty of food related gifts on the list. Check them out after the jump.
