∆CIDSQUID™ Psychedelic since. 1978

R.I.P. Philadeli 2.10.08

Posted in junk by acidsquid on February 17, 2008

This past week another Philly institution closed it’s doors for good.  If you ever lived or worked in the South Street district in the city of brotherly love, then you have most likely been to this fine establishment more than once.  Serving the South St area for 30 years, Philadeli was a second home to neighborhood natives.  You could cop all the essentials at this high priced Jewish bodega/diner, from tampons to take out beer.  I will miss going in there to buy smokes to only have Lenny bust my balls with his sarcastic, less than friendly sense of humor.  Big up to Fran, you’ll be missed too.

The only thing we we’re left with was a cartoon drawing of Porky Pig (wearing a fucking Yamaka) on the door saying “That’s all folks”.
