How to start a fight in Philly: Talk cheese steaks
Geno's or Pat's? That's all you need to say. As Brady MacDonald reports in this week's L.A. Times Travel section:
[In] Philadelphia, the cheese steak stands as equal parts civic symbol, tourist attraction and cultural obsession. And no place represents the true grit of this working-class town and speaks to the soul of the city better than the corner of 9th Street and Passyunk Avenue in South Philly, the cheese-steak epicenter where Pat's King of Steaks and Geno's Steaks face off 24 hours a day.
