April Sims Food Diaries: The Field House, Philadelphia, PA

The Field House is located 1150 Filbert St, Philadelphia, PA 19107.

The Field House looked like a typical sports bar / pub upon entry. Dark wood tables and chairs every where. They had a small stage in the window. No band that day. Just an empty stage.

Last night I got that chance with an  impromptu trip to Washington, D.C. (Saturday, February 19, 2012). Technology in regards to camera phones is amazing to me.
