The Best Thing That Happened This Week
Okay, it didn’t seem all that likely. Then again, all we hear anymore is how hip and cool Philly is — best place to visit! Best sandwich in the nation! Best for bacon-lovers! Best shopping in the world! So when we heard that a Philly cabdriver had called police to report that he thought he’d picked up escaped murderers David Sweat and Richard Matt at Broad and Vine, our hearts pounded with civic pride: Of course if you’d just tunneled out of prison 400 miles away, the first thing you’d want to do is have a cup of joe at La Colombe, check out the cozy tees at Duke & Winston, hit up DiNic’s for a roast pork, and top it off with the Madagascar Bourbon Vanilla from Capogiro.
It turned out our sharp-eyed cabbie was mistaken. Our excitement melted into relief — really, we already have enough murderers in town—and we got back to trying to remember which one of those two guys has the giant dick.
