Memorial Day is behind us (highlight for me was the Markus Shultz post Phillies event) and Beer Week is starting tonight. Not sure why they chose summer for the event but you can get the details on their website: http://www.phillybeerweek.org/.
Sunday is a fun, outdoor drinking day, the bike race. For readers on this list, you can wake up early and ride the course at 6:45AM Sunday morning. I am planning to be enjoying the day near the Wall in Manayunk.
Some good city of Philadelphia news this week with the Amtrak rail yard starting the long process of working to bring center city to 30th Street Station (currenty it is Rittenhouse Square) and a new rail park in west Philly.
