**** It would be remiss of me to not briefly discuss a local staple when it comes to sandwiches: Wawa. In the Philadelphia area, you can find a Wawa on practically every other corner. In fact, I got a turkey sub from one two blocks from our hotel after we played the 76ers. Aside from being fun to say, Wawa's are great. They are a full service convenience store and deli and are usually open 24 hours a day. Subs are made fresh and they use self-service touchscreen computers for orders. I walked in, found an open computer, and ordered my sub by using the touchscreen to pick exactly what I wanted in my sandwich. It then printed out a receipt so I could go pay while my sub was being made. By the time I grabbed my drink and chips and paid, my sandwich was ready. It was definitely a system of efficiency. And the subs are very good. So for all you sandwich fans who either need one really quick or are craving one at a really late hour, Wawa is the answer.

The Kinks were one of the most influential "British Invasion" bands of the 1960s. This is just one of their many hits.
