Even though it's near the Italian Market, Pat's (and Geno's) are not in the safest area of Philly.  A couple blocks away there are some pretty rough places.

My sister and her husband used to live within walking distance of Pat's.  It was fun to visit and walk to the Italian Market, but a few years ago they realized it was time to move out.

That's really the only time it's worth GOING to Pat's or Geno's because by then, the hundreds of other BETTER cheesesteak places are closed.

Police say many of the people involved in this fight were wearing yellow jerseys with "Club América" written across the shirt.

I love that "club" refers to soccer, sandwiches, and violence.

i have no interest in cheesesteaks and i don't understand the lines of people.  in Roxborough there are two across from each other on Henry Ave.  the lines are absurd, i just don't get it.  it's crap meat on a crap bun with melted yellow plastic dripped on it.

I agree with the Smellfeeta Cheez sentiment.

Not really sure where you're talking about.  The surrounding area is one of the more vibrant areas of the city with the East Passyunk dining scene and all.  I was just there this past weekend, and it's gentrification central.

Tried both Pat's and Geno's when I was in Philly years ago.

Neither one impressed me. No flavor to them other than grease. Not even meat flavor.

East Coast food traditions are generally garbage.
They put mustard on their BBQ for Christs sake.

Houston, and I say this with no expectation of any attempted refutation, is really the best place in America to eat any kind of food.

World Cup: Mexican fans' 'puto' chant leads to FIFA discipline (yahoo.com)
Mexico faced USA. Gay slurs from fans marred the match - Outsports
USA's south-of-the-border inhospitality (yahoo.com)

Like Americans and politics, religion, guns, etc. just stay away from the topic and you'll be fine.

The articles reference people in yellow shirts with "Club America" on the front. Club America played the Philadelphia Union in a Leagues Cup game in Philly last night. I'm confident in saying it's not Philadelphia Union soccer fans who killed this person.

I would support legislation that would add an aggravated nature to charges stemming from fights or vandalism related to sports enthusiasm.  This would not be limited to any particular sport.  There are far too many examples of sports fans' behavior degenerating to where they basically resemble street gangs in the wake of games.  Celebration is no excuse to be destructive or violent.

It's steak, it's in a roll (you've never had a good roll) and you can get cheddar, or at least provolone.

But then, you probably eat Velveeta.

And I do not *ever* put mustard on BBQ (like the brisket I did Texas style Labor Day weekend).
