Going into the Fadó Irish Pub was a spontaneous decision. I was passing by it and I got caught my attention. I was reading the menu when a couple started talking to me about and how good the burger and the smoked salmon bites.
My friend and I were literally driving around trying get a parking spot for like an hour until we decided to just park at a parking lot. It was so expensive. Like NYC expensive. Wow!
Anyway, since we couldn’t get near a restaurant we were trying to get to, I was looking around for a new one. That’s how we ended up by the pub. Lucky strike!
I ordered the Smoked Salmon Bites. It had horseradish sauce, capers and red onions. It was delicious. You can’t go wrong with smoked salmon.
I also had the “Soup of The Day.” I was Ginger Carrot Soup. It was delicious as well. It was the perfect end. Too bad I didn’t get to eat dessert. The dessert menu is so small. That sometimes is a sign that the restaurant doesn’t have a pastry chef onsite.
Overall, I liked the restaurant. If you are around Philadelphia, pay them a visit.

I went to Philadelphia over the weekend to visit an old classmate of mine from high school. We went around the downtown area. It was fun, even though it was raining non-stop throughout the weekend.
Someone recommended this restaurant to me. I am always up for trying new restaurants. I just love food. Any excuse is valid.
Nomad Pizza is a nice little pizza place. The oven was right in front of us and I could smell the truffle oil from the table. We ordered Truffle Pecorino pizza. My only complaint is that it was a bit high on sea salt in the center. I like well-seasoned dishes and when I say something is high on salt, other people find it really salty. I liked the pizza. It was tasty; just not the center of it. I would still recommend the restaurant. My friend liked it and she is a very picky eater. That says something.

There are a certain amount of jobs in my resume that have certainly taught me a lot of great things about the media industry. One of them guided me into where I am today. There are also people that have taught me a lot. I must admit that Web Girl Kathleen from Elvis Duran and the Morning Show is by far the best boss I have ever had. I have learned a lot from her. She doesn’t hold any information back and that is rare to see in the industry. Some people don’t teach the whole thing and hold secrets that are not really secrets. That is why I have to say I freaking love everyone in the team!
The part of meeting celebrities is just a plus of the job. I mean. Hello! Jared Leto! He is an Oscar-winning actor. I was in cloud nine. It was nice meeting him.
I am so happy to be able to do a second internship at EDMS in the Fall. It feels nice to know people appreciate one’s work.
I had to juggle a lot of things this summer. I took summer classes, an internship, packing, moving, and multiple trips down to Florida. Did I mention two dogs, HB and family on my back too? The key is to learn how to say NO to some things. I am only one Katherine. But I wouldn’t change anything.
Cheers to next semester, my upcoming graduation and my move to Florida. Well, cheers to the future!
