Philly Vs. Climate Change; Eat Seasonally & Events: 9/15 – 9/19

Eagles helmet on West River Drive SchuylkillFeeling like fall, yet? If you were lucky enough to get out this weekend, temperatures were perfect for a run or bike ride. After a vacation and bronchitis, I happily got my legs moving on a bike ride over the weekend to enjoy the crisp air and ever present Philly views.

Who’s ready to start the week with a bang? Whether you want to hear serious discussion on what Philly’s doing about Climate Change; drink with vegans, builders or local food advocates; or sprint your heart out to work (while admiring park(ing) spaces), this week’s going to be awesome. You’re welcome, Philly.
