How would you spend a perfect day in Center City?
I would start off my perfect day in Center City with a cup of coffee and something small to nibble on from Gran Caffé L’Aquila Philadelphia. Then it’s a mad dash to the Barneys off Rittenhouse Square to check out new arrivals in the men’s department. After receiving my fashion jolt from Barneys I would walk to Liberty Place to visit LR2. By stopping into my place of work on my day off, I get the chance to view my display windows as if I am the customer. I would finalize any of my personal custom made-to-measure orders and then continue shopping at The Shops at Liberty Place. As hunger starts to brew, I would make my way to the Reading Terminal Market for lunch. To end my perfect day in the city I must take a trip to one of my favorite stores in Philadelphia besides my own, Century 21.
