When I was walking around the area north of Mission Bay, I came across this bar, and it reminded me of my wife. Why? Well, the 21st Amendment is, of course, the amendment to the US Constitution that repealed prohibition. There is currently an exhibit at the National Constitution Center (where my wife works) called American Spirits: the Rise and Fall of Prohibition. If you find yourself in the Philadelphia area, you should check it out.
Another thing you should check out is my buddy Paul’s tumblr. This summer, Paul went on a tour of Europe, and posted his pictures here. It’s sort of like the spotlights I’ve been doing on American cities and neighborhoods, but on some of the largest, most beautiful and important cities in history. Take a look.
