Philadelphia: Good Dog

I was wandering around the center city/Rittenhouse Square area looking for a place to have a few rounds while Tammi hung out in the room watching tv.
I was heading for Monk’s Cafe, a Belgian bar that’s supposed to have a huge selection of obscure imports. When I got there it was prohibitively crowded, so I took off. I stumbled across Good Dog on 15th.
It wasn’t empty, but I found a spot at the bar, which is all I needed. The music on was totally random, much of it hitting my obscure hip-hop niche. They played some old Grand Puba, A Tribe Called Quest and “can I get wit’cha” an early BIG appearance from back in the day.
The beer selection had some good stuff from dogfishhead, Troeg, Victory, and Stoudt’s representing the local breweries.
I tried to avoid getting food, since I was going to dinner in a bit, but the sizzling mac n cheese looked amazing when served to the folks next to me. I had a snack of truffled cheese steak empanadas. The filling was not as cheesy as I’d have preferred, but I have yet to taste an empanada I didn’t like.
