Another Friday Morn

Another Friday morn, and I ain't got no buddies
I work off-site, so I'll still get paid,
How I wish for someone to play ping-pong with,
I'm in an awful way.
Apologies to Sam Cooke...

Pepper Lounge

Originally uploaded by fourworlds.
I thought it might be good to post some restaurant recommendations on the blog. Pepper Lounge, located at 2005 Locust Street, is one of our favorites. It is just a few blocks away and has great food and service.

They have a pretty eclectic menu with daily specials that range from Seafood Orzo to Gourmet Pizza. Try their homemade potoato chips!

They are only open for lunch Wed-Fri.

Their website is under construction, but stay tuned.
