Fantastic old bar in Old City, offering a great selection of Cajun food and beers on tap. Best po boys this side of the big easy, not to mention greens and hush puppies. Don't forget the mac and cheese.

We're playing tourist, including stopping in at the new Museum of the American Revolution. A friend steered us clear of any tourist places that sell sub-standard, price inflated cheese steaks. Instead, we're hitting a pub that has great beer. Khyber Pass is around the corner...More
