Spaghetti Barbershop / Spaghetti Train Station

Sunny and 38°F. Went geocaching in pretty much the same region as yesterday but closer towards Philadelphia. I went to Chester Township, Springfield, Upper Darby, Clifton Heights, Drexel Hill, and the Main Line today. None of the caches were difficult. "Phobia #9" was funny because of its location but I can't write more without spoiling the surprise. I also drove by the Target store that took the place of the Adam's Mark where Anthrocon was held for a number of years. Aside from the Target strip mall and the new buffet place, City Avenue looks pretty much the same as it did 5 years ago. And traffic is just as bad now too.

In the evening, I went to Spaghetti Warehouse in Philadelphia for the Cacher V. Food: A Pasta Eating Event geocaching event. This is an unusual restaurant. There's a barber chair in the reception area. Is that for when you get spaghetti and a haircut? Dinner and shave? The rest of the restaurant decor appears to be in the style of an old-fashioned train station. I'm glad they didn't take the "warehouse" part of the name literally or we'd be sitting on wooden crates and getting the food by forklift. Anyway, it was a good event, although maybe not as large as some geocaching events. I had spaghetti with meat sauce and Italian sausage. The food wasn't spectacular but the Wednesday spaghetti special was a decent deal.

At the end of the event, I asked for suggestions on Philly geocaches with easy parking at night. I did two of the suggested caches and added "95 North and South (Port Richmond)" since it was so close to the ramp I was going to take to get back onto I-95.
