Quick Philly Layover!!!

So we had a six hour layover in Philly and we decided to leave the airport and check out some of the city.  Our plan was to hop a cab and go to Pat's and Geno's and compare steaks, our cabbie had other plans.  He said that he "would take us to Pat's, but that he would rather take us to Tony Luke's."  So on his recommendation we went to Tony Luke's, grabbed some steaks with WIZ to go and headed over to Independence Hall.  So we get to Independence Hall, get yelled at by security, ate our cheese steaks in the park out back and went to see the Liberty Bell.  It's a lot smaller than I remember. (of course I haven't been there since I was a kid) We still had a little time to kill so we walked over to South Street and had a few drinks in a bar called TATTOOED MOM.  Great little hole in the wall pub-n-grub place.  Had some great conversation with a few local punk kids and a lady who works at the zoo. (I swear we meet the greatest people when we travel, but thats what its all about.) After that we grabbed a train and headed back to the airport where we met a nice women from Germany while having a pre-flight drink.  Not that exciting I know, but the fun is just starting.
