Manayunk

Pretzel Park, Pa

The results are in, one of Jackson’s favorite dog parks in the Philadelphia area is the Pretzel Park in Manayunk. If you need a nice fenced in park to take your pup, this is a great option, and its a hop skip and a jump from Main Street Manayunk. (and if you are on Main Street in the Yunk, please Please PLEASE you must visit my new favorite eatery….The Couch Tomato Cafe) Seriously, The Couch Tomato is so good, I am getting hungry for pizza and hummus salad right now, I may have to finish up this posting and go eat there.

Another great option for dog parks in the suburbia area outside of Philadelphia is the Harford Park in Wayne. This is an off the leash dog park. Its a huge area and anytime Jackson and I go there, tons of dogs of all shapes and sizes are there. He loves it, but since he is a smaller guy, sometimes I feel he is intimidated by the vast openness. Anytime we go there he enjoys himself, as long as the big rottweilers don’t bother him.

Manayunk Bike Race 2008






The 2008 Pro Cycling Tour Philadelphia International Championship Triple Crown of Cycling, or as I call it the Manayunk Bike Race was held this past weekend. I had never been before, but it was fabulous and crazy and awesome all at the same time. My car got blocked in and I wasn’t able to head out to work in the morning, so I figured, might as well enjoy the day. It was so cool to watch the bikers go by, and Manayunk was crazy, everyone was acting like they were in college, drinking all over the places, the cops didn’t care, it was a sight! The race itself consisted of 10 bigger laps from Center City Philadelphia, all the way out to Manayunk which totalled 156 intense miles in the ridiculous 100 degree heat! The best part to watch, and I am sure the worst part to actually bike was the Manayunk Wall. It is difficult to walk up or down, let alone bike it. This is where most people set up shop, to watch the race, hang out, party at. This weekend, Manayunk definitely partied it up!
