This week I had the absolute pleasure of sitting down with Philly author and public relations expert Irene Levy Baker, author of 100 Things To Do In Philly Before You Die. And this is a very family friendly episode; nothing spooky, creepy or macabre, or too grown up for little one’s ears. Ok well, we do talk about one ghost story……
This book is an absolute gem, filled with the best of the best restaurants, museums, concert halls, everything that’s wonderful about the city of Brotherly Love. Leveraging her experience providing tours for travel writers, whom are not easily impressed, Irene presents the gems of our city – some hidden, and some well known but not the way Irene knows them – creating a guide book that’s great for visitors, and equally as wonderful for Philly natives.
Yours truly found a few spots which not only had I never visited, I never even knew existed. Yes, I’m hanging my head in shame. Irene Levy Baker is funny and smart, curious and charming and I know you’ll love her as much as I do.
Irene is offering a special bonus for TwistedPhilly listeners. When you order her book on her website – http://www.100thingstodoinphiladelphia.com/ – Irene will autograph your copy before mailing. Thank you for such a great opportunity for our listeners!
