Hi Guys,

I am going over to the US for a short business trip next week Thursday and after Friday morning 11 AM I am convicted to stay in Philadelphia until Sunday evening wink.gif .

In other words: can anyone give me any advices what I can do during those days. Any good and big guitar stores you can recommend, any other 'music-related' activities' or other sightseeing things.

Been to Philly before 2 years ago and saw already the Big Bell and a couple of museums.

Any advices would be great!

Cheers
Roger

Went to Pat's the other day and they forgot to add the cheese to the steak. Better to go to Geno's...it is right across the street....better yet, go to both...multiple times. They are the best.

Do not know about the guitar stores but you can check out the Liberty Bell, the US mint (coins and medals) but be sure to grab a pretzel . Enjoy.

Ok, back from the US and I certainly grabbed a pretzel, bought an insanely expensive guitar cable (tongue.gif) and tried to get a cheese steak at Geno's, however .... the line was a bit long (much longer than shown on the picture ....) and I had to catch a plane the same afternoon tongue.gif



Thanks guys for the tips!
