    WOW, where to start. Usually every time I leave a DSO show I swear "that was the best Dark Star show I've even seen". This time blew me away. Highlights for me were the 1st 2nd and 3rd sets. They really nailed them in my opinion. The vibe was very cool. I liked the ladies on stilts, and the crazy ballerina/hula hoop/trapeze artist was a nice touch. I've seen many bands in my day, but nobody can harness the energy like DSO. They take it to another level every time I see them. Props to the awesome couple I met from DC. David and his lovely wife who I already forgot her name. Very cool people to ring in the new year with. I really hope some video and audio pop up from this show. I want to see how that vibe translates to tape. Hopefully everyone got home safe and I can't wait to see what DSO has planned for 2018!

    Around the venue can be a little sketchy. Whatever you do don't follow the black guy who tries to waive you down to a "parking lot" to the left right before the venue entrance. They send you down about 5 blocks then some shady dude will try to charge you $40 (then probably rob your car when you're not there). If you're driving, try to get to the venue a little early and get in the main lot. If not, try going down a block or two there's some street parking. As for food, the other poster was spot on about Reading Terminal Market (think farmers market on steroids with a bunch of little walk up food counters) and Dinic's Roast Pork is the best. Also if you're in town before the show you can always check out South Street. Lots of places to eat/shop there. Jim's on the corner of South 4th street is top notch for Cheesesteaks. If you're going to Jim's the line will probably be out the door & wrapped around the corner, but the wait is worth it. They let you BYOB there and if you get your steak walk to the back of the restaurant near the bathrooms and there's a stairway that takes you up to a 2nd floor eating area with great views of the crazies on South Street! You can also leave out the door at the bottom of the stairway so you won't have to fight your way through the crowd in the restaurant on the way out. Pat's and Geno's are nice because they're 24hours & usually have a pretty eclectic crowd. I prefer Pat's but there are definitely better steaks around if you're eating during regular business hours. Don't get me wrong I've eaten many a Pat's cheesesteak and they are good (just make sure you know how to order what you want before you get to the window). Cheesesteaks at the 1st window, drinks and fries at the 2nd window. The correct way to order: Wiz witout = Steak with Cheesewiz no onions. Wiz wit = Steak with Cheesewiz and onions. Then you can substitute different cheeses like American wit = Steak with American Cheese and onions. If you want marinara sauce on the steak it's called a pizza steak. There are peppers on the counter behind the window along with napkins & utensils. If you've never been there I highly recommend checking them out just for the spectacle. But for my money I'd rather eat at Phillip's Steaks, maybe Nick's Original Roast Beef, a Primo Hogie (Italian sandwiches), John's Roast Pork (which is hardly ever open), or *Dalessandro's in Manyunk (a little outside of the city but my favorite). As for bringing in party favors at the Electric Factory. In the past they have shaken people down pretty hard. I recall a while back having to take my shoes off at the door for the bouncers to search them. Haven't been there in a couple years but you may want to get creative if you need to bring something in under the radar. One thing the Electric Factory doesn't lack is energy. The place will be rockin. The sound is good and loud but don't plan on too much dance space. Should be a great time.

    Do not sleep on Carson Wentz. I've never seen a QB like him. He's a combination of Big Ben, Aaron Rodgers, Peyton Manning, and John Elway. The dudes got balls the size of church bells. I've seen him stand in the pocket with pressure in his face and put the ball right on the money, he's fearless probably to a fault. He has taken too many hits over his first two years, some of that is bad coaching (Set a franchise record for most attempts by a QB) and some of it is a young "I can do anything" mentality. I know the latter may change, hopefully coaches rely more on the run game when he comes back. And remember Tom Brady tore his ACL & MCL back in 2008 and his career turned out pretty good. You just can't count this guy out. And while you're at it don't count out the Birds. They still have 52 other guys on the roster who've gotten them to 11-2. Grant it, losing the league MVP & your team leader hurts. But this team has overcome so many injuries this year, they've been surprisingly resilient. And at the beginning of the year if you asked who the best backup QB in the league was a lot of people would have said it was Nick Foles. At one time Foles was a pro bowl MVP and his jersey is in the NFL hall of fame for having 7 TDs in one game (NFL record, shared by 7 others). So we know what he can do when coached up & in an ideal situation. So the Eagles have to look at it as a 6 game season with a bunch of home games (undefeated at home this year). And if Case Keenum (journeyman QB) can do it, why not Nick Foles!. This message is more to convince myself of all this than anything. Severe depression has hit the Delaware Valley and the easy way out is to lump this in with all the other bad luck Philly sports teams have had oer the years, but the NFL seems a little different this year. We'll see what happens, but it's great to have someone with such character as your team leader. I have no doubt Wentz will come back and eventually bring home a Lombardi trophy to Philly

    Booo Big Red. 16-3 coming off a Bye. He couldn't resist sticking it to an Eagles fan one last time. Good luck to the final two! Remember, you don't want to end up like me ~ Don't you touch hard liquor, just a cup of cold coffee
