It has been ages since I have visited the historic city of Philadelphia. Not since my days in NYC have I had the opportunity to make it to the City of Brotherly Love. Given I have only been there a handful of times, and out of those only twice was I of an age to truly appreciate all the city had to offer, I would like to go again. I remember the first time I went there (when I was of said age to enjoy the niceties), my friend clued me in to what locals call “The Philly Challenge.”
In a mash-up fit for Lardass Hogan from Stand By Me, to partake in this challenge means first having to grab a cheesesteak sandwich from Jim’s Steaks, then walking across the street to Lorenzo’s Pizza and grabbing a slice of pie. It should be noted that each slice is the size of a half a pizza. Roll the sandwich up in the slice and enjoy.
Whoa. Has anyone actually done this? I mean, even Man Vs. Food couldn’t handle the Jack N’ Grill Challenge. So with that I state: if any of my our Philly-based readers have partaken in this beyond-amazing feat and completed it, let me know. Better yet, do it again and take pictures. I gotta see this to believe this.
