Last weekend, I headed up to NYC with several other Philly bloggers to attend the Hebrew National Better Than A Picnic Picnic.  I had previously posted about the event here. I met my fellow bloggers at a local spot to meet the bus to head north.  Unfortunately, the bus was late - and ended up breaking down on the highway (!) on the way there.  … [Read more...]
