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.
Early to the park in time for BP. I love BP !
Me, Stephen and Jody
Any closer and we would have needed a uniform.
You know who!
These really were great games. Lots of homers and action.
Dominic Brown goes Deeeep! Second Deck in right field.
The unknown Fan ?
Front row, directly next to dugout, unlimited food, with 9-inning waiter service, all included in the ticket price.
This is Ralph’s. The oldest Italian restaurant in the US. Same Family, same recipes, same building for 110 YEARS !
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……
