Phillies Game- Diamond Style

On my other blog I wrote about the historical side of our recent trip to DC/Philly. Now here is the “fun” side.

The San Francisco Giants were in town. We had tickets for the Tue. and Wed. games. I treated Jody to some of the best seats in the house, exclusive Diamond Dugout section, front row. My crew consisted of Stephen, Johnny D and Jody. We were blessed with incredibly nice weather and two great games(the Phillies won both). As good as the games were, our food experience might have been better- with a visit to Ralph’s, the oldest Italian restaurant in the US, and Donkey’s in Camden, NJ.

This is Donkey’s. Camden NJ. Ive been eating here for my whole life, 50 plus years. This took Jody way out of his comfort zone. I loved it…

The neighborhood is a little sketchy ( dangerous ). Yes, that is one of the bullet holes in the window.

But, the food is well worth the risk. This is The Best cheesesteak in the world. Period. save your breath. Donkey’s Rules……
