Not every evening do we possess the time and energy to slave over the stove and prepare an epic meal. Sometimes you just want to have friends over for something that doesn’t require a lot of work.

They rundown a list of Philly-centric phrases like Quizzo, and shots fired about the origins of who started wearing a fanny pack first in the Philly comedy scene. Brian also learns that sherry should be poured in moderation.
