Take ‘er to da zoo. Or propose to her here, in front of Mr. Tiger’s cage. Even if you’re not ready to propose, the Philly Zoo is an amazing place to visit, and one of the most popular in the city.

(Philadelphia) Adrian’s pet shop – literally just a few steps away from Mighty Mick’s – has gotten dingier with the years. It was, for years, a real pet shop, but was closed in the mid 2000’s.
