Get Ski Season Ready

It’s finally the best time of year again, and no we’re not talking about the holidays, we’re talking about ski season. Yes, the magical season of fresh powder, outdoor hot tubs and snow bunnies is upon us yet again, meaning it’s now socially acceptable to talk nonstop about the snow conditions and obsessively check the weather report in hopes of a blizzard. We know that whether you’re a seasoned pro or just getting into the magical sport having all the right gear can make all the difference out on the slopes.

Ski For A Sandwich

We know that after hours of skiing or boarding, the last thing you want to do is sit down in a restaurant for a long, drawn out meal; so instead of hitting up the closest fast food joint on the way back into Philly, hit up Jakes Sandwich Board’s newest location in University City for a satisfying sandwich.

Put The Giving In T-giving

Thanksgiving. The best holiday ever: football, parades and unnecessary amounts of over eating. Top that off with a bit of booze and an afternoon nap, and you have yourself the perfect weekend. Well, almost.

Leave The Leftovers

Thanksgiving is awesome. There’s nothing quite like watching the big game with your family, drinking until you fall over and spending the day eating nonstop. However, having the whole family over to enjoy some turkey usually takes three days of cleaning, two days of cooking and then at least one solid day of recovery.

Speed To Lo Spiedo

Taking a vacation is awesome, except for that whole packing, getting to the airport two hours early to stand in the security line before getting on a plane where a baby will inevitably scream at the top of its lungs the whole time, part. Sometimes that alone is enough to make you never want to leave Philly again.
