Getting excited about this weekend's shows! Can any Philly fans help me out?
-I've read this is not the best neighborhood at night..?
-Any recommendations for pre-show food/drink?
-How long will subway take from Center City or is taxi the way to go?

Thanks!
Mike

I wouldn't worry too much about the neighborhood. Only one place to grab a beer/food nearby, The Waterford, right next door. Get there early as it will get really packed. Drinks inside are pretty steep, so do it up beforehand. Can't help with the train/taxi advice, but its directly beside 69th Street Station. Have a great time!

I've been there twice and it's not really that bad an area. However parking is horrendous. Both times we went my friend's car received a ticket. It's good to go by public transportation or taxi because of the parking problem.

parking is actually easy and free park in the sears parking garage walk down right on the same street 69th. Just a few block walk past all the stores on the main drag. No Subway service there just the Septa train and probably no late service.

I take Septa back to Cetner City after every Tower show. So it runs at least until about midnight.
