Four Books to Read, Written by Philly Authors

With March being Women’s History Month, now is the best time to celebrate and indulge in must-read novels by these great (and local!) Philly women:

  1. Disgruntled: A Novel by Asali Solomon
  2. Mrs. Everything by Jennifer Weiner
  3. Bossypants by Tina Fey
  4. Ladysitting by Lorene Cary

Three Philly Recipes to Try

If you want to live like a local, you have to cook like a local, too. Here are a few staples to get you started:

  1. Tomato PieA Philly tradition, hot or cold.
  2. Soft Pretzel: Just add spicy mustard.
  3. Trader’s Joe’s Philly Cheesesteak Bao Buns: Okay, okay… So, this one’s not homemade, but it’s a twist on the classic cheesesteak and an absolute must-try.

Two Philly-Themed Things to Watch

No introduction needed for these two:

  1. Have you seen the OG Rocky? If not, stop what you are doing and queue it up right now! You can rent it on Google Play here for just $2.99. Then, of course, head to the Philadelphia Museum of Art to take a photo with Philly’s beloved Rocky Statue or run up the Rocky steps.
  2. Dispatches from Elsewhere, a new Anthology series featuring Jason Segal, is THE show for Philly locals. It was shot right here in Philly this past summer (were we the only ones seeing Jason Segal everywhere?) and features all of our favorite Philly locations—Rittenhouse Square, Old City, and more!
