Little Pete’s Closing Night and Block Party

After years open, this Memorial Day, Little Pete’s closed its doors for good. A line was formed out the door and around the corner most of their last day open.

An establishment to house people at all hours, Little Pete’s was more than a small diner, but a meeting spot to many. The servers and patrons alike made you feel welcome, always greeting you with a genuine Hello, and remembering every face that walked through their doors. Plus, their homestyle cooking was far better than any other diner in Philly! Sad to have had my last turkey BLT last week, but I’ll just have to travel to the other location.

 

I stopped in the last week they were open during the day and snapped some photos.

 

And then came back on Memorial Day to watch the last crowd get their food, and the doors close at 9pm sharp!

 

The following day, there was a block party with live music that ran way past the scheduled time. Little Pete’s had about 200 hoagies, 200 kabobs, wine and beer for anyone who came by.

Spruce Street Harbor Park

Another beautiful sunset in the city Tuesday night. I headed down to this new park next to the Port Museum, and it was a lot larger than I thought! They had a mini arcade for kids, funnel cake (for $8), food trucks, swan rides in the water, and hammocks!

I walked down to the path out on the Delaware for the sunset and made a short timelapse.

View that and my other little timelapses on my YouTube channel:

4th of July

I headed to the Ben Franklin Bridge on the 4th to watch the fireworks from the Camden side of the river. Thanks to the rain, the clouds made the sky stormy and surreal for the fireworks over the Delaware!
