We’ve talked about the 1 Cheesesteak per month rule before here.Â There’s a good reason to have it.Â I live 6 blocks from Pat’s And Geno’s.Â I live 7 blocks from Jim’s Steaks.Â I live just over a mile from John’s Roast Pork.Â And it’s Just 2 miles to Tony Luke’s.Â If I was Artie Lange I’d be dead by now.Â
So with that plethora of great sandwich places, placing a 1 cheesesteak per month rule is a necessity.Â Even if that makes it difficult for the Cheesesteak Guru!Â How much content can IÂ put up here, if I’m only eating 12 steaks per year.

But the resident South Philadelphian, that I am, was able to bolt out of the Wachovia Center Parking lot, Make a right on to Pattison, quick Left onto 7th Street.Â Shoot down 7th to Reed, make a left, then 2 blocks later, make a right on 9th.Â Sometimes, I’ll switch it up to up to Passyunk to look for parking.Â Or I’ll go down to Federal and loop around Capitolo Playground.
