All signs are telling us, we live in troubled times. We see it, hear it, feel it — we know it. But, if we are to join together, all wars end. Photo taken at Philadelphia’s Magic Gardens, 2013 Weekly photo challenge: Signs Advertisements
There are no limits to human creativity. If we are able to apply it for good, there is absolutely nothing we could not do. Photos taken of The Magic Gardens, during a walk through Philadelphia. Created by mosaic artist Isaiah Zagar, the gardens span three city lots and are made up of materials such as plates, tiles, bottles, bike wheels and mirrors.
Last year my boyfriend and I went to Philadelphia to do a food tour. Before we went, we (mainly he) searched for videos of places that were featured on Food Network and Travel Channel shows such as Diners, Drive Ins and Dives and Best Thing I Ever Ate and mapped out where we wanted to go. One of the places on our list was this restaurant called Lolita, a recommendation from Food Network chef Robert Irvine on The Best Thing I Ever Ate’s “In A Bowl” episode. The dish: tiramisu. It is sweet, with a perfect amount of heat, which makes it a very balanced dessert. The texture and creaminess add to it as well. The verdict: it was the best tiramisu we’ve eaten. Lolita Tiramisu Dessert rating: 9.5 out of 10 (We didn’t eat anything else in this restaurant other than the Tiramisu, so a restaurant rating will not be fair)
