This spiderweb, hanging off a house in West Philly, was enormous. It had to have been three or four feet tall and a foot and a half or more wide. It was impossible to capture in its entirety, and the sunlight hid behind a cloud once I got the camera out, so it wasn’t catching the light enough, but I did my best!
In other news, I wore my kid slique scarf to work today! It was a nippy 52 degrees F, and as we all know a covered neck means a warm body.
And here’s a mini-restaurant review for Liz: Pod, like most Steven Starr restaurants, is all about spectacle, and if you like that kind of thing, you’ll love the atmosphere. The food, like most of his restaurants, is decently well thought out and is best consumed from the appetizer/small plate menu. The entrees tend to leave me a little disappointed, so since this was my second time at Pod, I recommended my friend and I split things. The tempura vegetables appetizer was a little lackluster, but the tuna roll with lump crabmeat was divine (it’s actually lump crab rolled in a thin sheet of raw tuna). Lettuce wraps were messy but yummy, and shrimp dumplings rounded out the meal. We were stuffed afterward! Oh, definitely sample the drinks, which you order by color: We can recommend Pink and Orange. Be sure to use the restroom while there; the design is pretty awesome.
