Wiz Wit! or Pete's vs. Geno's Cheesesteaks

Wednesday, July 2 – Philadelphia, Pennsylvania
A graffiti artist covers his face before we can film him: he does some tagging around Philly too and doesn’t want to be recognized. Ironic. He’s from Colorado and gives us a shout out by painting “303” on his section. He goes by Pablo. A nice warm up for ...

The Philadelphia Mural Arts Program is amazing. Period. Started as part of an anti-graffiti movement, it turned the talents of graffiti artists into a positive community-building experience, Jane Golden tells us. Now, there are over 2,800 murals throughout Philly. We paint the side of a police building with Mayor Michael Nutter.

“Wiz wit” I yell to the guy at Geno’s. “Wiz wit” Jeremy yells to the guy at Pete’s across the street. It’s the only way to order your Philly cheese steak (wiz=cheese wiz, wit=with onions). Jeremy’s was probably crappy. Not that there’s a rivalry there!

Pats, yes, thank you. Andy is really competitive; he's tumbling down the smear campaign trail.
