Didn't Rahr Brewing in Ft. Worth have a lot of beers in the top 50 last year? And this year not one.....hmmm. They have pretty much the same line-up this year. Wonder what changed...definitely interesting.

My main question, outside of where else to visit for special beer week events, is should I carry my handgun in downtown Philly?
Philly areas breweries to look for are Sly Fox, Yards and Nodding Head. You might also find Flying Fish (NJ) and some Dogfish Head oddities.
Good web sites:

Philly Beer Week (http://www.phillybeerweek.org/)
The touristy areas of Philly are reasonably safe from violent crime, IME, although it's been a few years since I've visited. The hairy areas are/were West and North Philly and that's not where the bars or attractions are. Anyhow, most of the violent crime is between people who know each other, rather than random attacks on visitors.
I'm not a cop or a lawyer, but it just seems like common sense to research the local gun laws; perhaps talk with your department or the Philadelphia PD. Pennsylvania has some weird laws, so there might be oddities about carrying there. Presumably, professional police forums or the NRA web site will give better advice than you'll get here.
Given that you'll be going into bars, stadiums and other private property where they might have restrictions on carrying, my gut instinct is to leave the gun at home. If you "look like a cop" even out of uniform, I can't imagine anyone hassling you. In any case, your most valuable weapons when confronted with most crimes is common sense and a cell phone.
If you're looking for a way to control the smoke escaping, you really can't go wrong w/ the fireplace cord suggested here. I'd suggest using temp resistant silicone as opposed to the fireplace cement though. The fireplace stuff gets pretty brittle with all the moving around.
Rut Roh, Rorge!

If you're into baseball Citizen's Bank Park is a fabulous place, plus you can check out the Fightin' Phils.
Most of that Fightin' being in the stands, right?
Not in Philly.
I know this will get filtered but you'll get the point:
WHAT THE f##k RED SOX?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?
Real football takes place on Saturdays, anyways
But the NFL doesn't really play
Saturdayany games until late in the season
It's the Mets and the Phillies for the next three days and a friend offered me tickets for tomorrow's night game 1st base side 15th row. I'm stoked!
I hope all those greedy F---s in the NFL don't ruin it for us fans. Maybe we should form a fans' union and strke the NFL.
2 runs in the top of the 1st...Season starting off good so far!
Opening day is at 3p for us today. Already pumped!
Too bad you're going to lose
You got to go to The Series?! Man, that's a lifelong dream for me! Lucky you!
Thanks for being a good sport. It must have been a tough loss. Both teams played some great ball. Buster Posey has got to be Yogi Berra reincarnated or something - amazing poise and game awareness for a rookie. Plus a howitzer for an arm.
UUUUUUUUUU------Ribe plays for the Dodgers now and helped them beat SF in their opener in LA tonight. One down - 161 games to go...
DH takes the substitution strategy out of play... Manager chess match and all like that.
If you play the field you gotta take your cuts too!
Did I metion I'm pumped that baseball season has started?
