As we turn the page on another year, many of us take time to reflect on events of the past 12 months. We look at events in our own lives, our families, our friends, and we look at the world around us, considering the good, the bad and the ugly of 2018.
With that in mind, I’ve curated a collection of some of the best, the worst, the craziest and unexpected, in TwistedPhilly, what happened in and around the city that made us laugh, made us cry, or made us say what the actual fuck just happened?
Some of these tales will be heartfelt, others will seem like miracles, and before we’re done there will be a few that leave you shaking your head in shame or embarrassment saying “only in Philly.”
I’ll have a few friends join me along the way to give you their best or worst of 2018 in the city of brotherly love and sisterly affection. This episode is rather supersized, so I split it in two. Part one is a menagerie of the best and worst Philly had to offer in 2018. Part two features a story story we thought was one of the best tales born on Philly’s mean streets, only to realize it was a giant crock of burned whiz (if you’re not local that’s cheese whiz, something people put on cheese steaks .
