Well, I'm not going to be at NESUG this year, but I *can* give you
some cheesesteak advice. Even though I'm not from Philly.
Go down to South Philly and go to Pat's. Order a cheesesteak wit'
onions and wit' Cheese Whiz. This is the only known decent
application for Cheese Whiz. Well, that, and industrial glues. :-)
Some people may recommend Geno's. The two places are rivals
in an eternal dispute about who invented the cheesesteak, and
there's this interesting Pat's-vs-Geno's rivalry among many people
in Philly. For some, going and eating at the 'other' place is akin
to suddenly deciding to go root for the Dallas Cowboys instead of
the Eagles. In other words, it is sacrilege. :-)
Oh, and have your mind made up about your order before you get
up to the counter.
