Philadelphia Magazine does a pretty good job this month of coming up with 76 reasons to love Philly. There are a few entries I find questionable, like Main Line gossip and the Anthropologie store on 18th street, but most are spot on, like midnight pretzels at the Pretzel Factory, Kelly Drive, and the Curtis Institute of Music. My favorite reason of all is No. 27, that old standby that represents so many of the city’s good qualities: fresh rolls, chummy service, low prices, and 24-hour access to Tastykakes and soft pretzels. Here’s to Wawa.
