What Parking Wars Can Teach Us About Food

1) Ticket-writer, animal lover, and outdoorsman Brian clues us into (brace yourself) a patch of wild strawberries growing in the shadow of the Blue Cross building. Wild strawberries! In Center City!

2) Folks in the Northeast really heart Rita’s water ice. Enough to illegally park in a bus zone to grab a quick cup anyway. We say, Boo! Rita’s can’t hold a pretzel rod to the water ice at John’s (pineapple), Mancuso’s (lemon), and Italiano’s (iced tea). Spring, please hurry the $%@# up.

3) The PPA impound lot is within walking distance of both John’s Roast Pork and IKEA. Oooh those cinnamon buns.

4) Juan Valdez on 1601 JFK Boulevard serves some good cafe de Colombia.


5) Eat at the University City Qdoba, get two tickets. One for illegally parking. One for having sucky taste in Mexican food.

Sometime in the mid-1990s, somebody at Rita's Water Ice told me the Academy Plaza location outsold every other location except the original on Bristol Pike. I don't know if this is true, but that was the Rita's near my parents and it was always packed. Full t-ball teams were always there; maybe it's a Northeast thing?
