Philly Music By Jacki Bigas • Philadelphia is undoubtedly an amazing city. It is a cultural, artistic, and musical centered place, with many venues to explore and entice all your musical senses.
My Webpage • Although there are countless venues, bars, and hotspots around the city that house and showcase music, I choose to focus on four popular places. The TLA The Electric Factory The Trocadero The First Unitarian Church
Features on My Webpage • Each music venue has its own link and page. • Some important features include: - A brief description of the venue - A list of upcoming shows and dates - The location of each venue, including a link to Google Maps, to help you get there easier - Links to the venues official pages and links to Ticketmaster.com, where show times can be found and tickets can be easily bought online.
Multimedia on My Webpage • Music is a very interactive and visual art, and by using multimedia on all pages of Philly Music, I incorporated that. • Multimedia Includes: - Photo slideshow depicting various scenes of Philadelphia and the music halls. - Video of various bands and artists performing at the respective venues taken by actual patrons. Watch and get a feel of what a live concert there would feel like!
Philly FoodBy Kylie Patterson • Philadelphia is a premiere place to indulge your taste buds and explore different types of cuisine. • On my pages I discussed some of the most well known and prestigious restaurants in the city, as well as some of the best places to get a Philly original; the cheese steak.
Best Food In Town Red Sky Both a lounge and a restaurant, Red Sky offers food so fresh, your taste buds will explode. With a very sensual ambiance, red lighting sets the mood for this hip social hot spot. Come with your friends or someone special. Tangerine A popular place to get some of the most innovative and inspired foods around. The foods are seasonal and the menu is always changing. Expect to try something new every time you come! The staff and waiters are very helpful in helping you order, and the Chefs Special, which changes daily, is guaranteed to please. Cuba Libre One of the few prestigious restaurants featuring Spanish Cuisine, Cuba Libre offers exhilarating and spicy foods true to its title. Located in the heart of Old City, it offers authentic Spanish food such as “papas fritas” “ropa viajo” and “tomales”. The atmosphere is purely Cuban. Come and enjoy a great meal, just as you would in Havana!
Philly Originals The Philadelphia Cheese Steak is a staple for the City. Here are a few local establishments where you can get the best cheese steaks around. Pat’s & Geno’s The rivalry between these two South Philly steakhouses has become the stuff of legends around Philadelphia. The food offered here is authentically Philadelphian and no matter which eatery you prefer, you will always be satisfied. There is nothing that goes together better than Philly and the Philly Cheese Steak!! Jim’s Steaks Located on the popular tourist section of South Street Jim’s has been considered more of a tourist trap than a place to get authentic Philly-made cheese steaks. Although the food they serve is good, the lines are usually ridiculously long and the authentic mom and pop Philly Steak shops are the best place to go for a good cheese steak.
