10 Years - Bala Cynwyd

Sunny and 85°F, although I thought it would rain earlier in the day. Went to the "10 Years! Bala Cynwyd" geocaching event at KFC in Bala Cynwyd. If the name of the town sounds familiar to some of you, that's because this town is on the other side of City Avenue from the Adam's Mark where Anthrocon was held until 2004.

Of course, I geocached on the way to the event and found a bunch in Springfield, Bala Cynwyd, and Manayunk. Arrived at the KFC a bit late but just in time for the group photo. It was rather crowded in that KFC with so many attendees so I didn't order any food until the event was over and everyone had left. I had the Double Down. No real surprises there. It tasted exactly the way I imagined two KFC chicken fillets with cheese and bacon in between would taste. It's also very oily. The oil went right through the wrapper. I'd say that's one reason why most sandwiches use bread.

After that, I went to check out the Target store that replaced the Adam's Mark. That lot is actually more than just a Target store. There's also a courtyard with a few restaurants. (Chipotle, Pei Wei, California Pizza Kitchen) Denny's, which used to be next to the Adam's Mark, is now a TD Bank. There's a geocache, "Spot on Baby!", there too so I looked for it before going into the Target store.
