We got off the bus from Philadelphia and needed a drink... First place we went to was the Wakamba and we made it a point to go back before disembarking to Philly again. On our short visit, this was the coolest place in the city we hung out at. Good music and hot bartenders! Loved the decor as well. Crowd was really cool to us too, and we were rocking our Phillies gear to the max. As for the prices, they didn't seem out of hand compared to anywhere else... at least we had fun here. Brush up on your Spanish before you try to flirt with the bartenders.

Some Hints:

  • The best reviews give a clear sense of why you liked or disliked a restaurant, bar, or store. And that means details. Mention specifics dishes, type of crowd, pros and cons...
  • If it's helpful to compare one place to another, go for it.
  • Come up with clever, funny, pithy subject lines, and write in the first person.
  • Don't forget to read the user rating guidelines and rules.
