I have lived in Philadelphia since 1999 so I have a lot of good advice to offer about places to go and avoid. I like meeting kind new people and always enjoy a good conversation.
To reiterate, parking is difficult in general in the evenings. If driving, I suggest arriving during the day and then use other forms of transportation once here.
-If you smoke, I ask that you smoke on the back porch where there is a table and chairs and ash tray. Smoking is not allowed in the house.
-If you plan on having any guests, please run this by me first
-If something breaks, please do not hide this. I understand that accidents happen and am very forgiving in this respect.
-Please do not forget to unplug irons and turn off stoves and burners
-Common sense , but please do not use metal on teflon pans
-Since there are already two cats, I generally do not allow additional pets without discussing first
