How would you spend a perfect day in Center City?
Tea on my deck overlooking the city skyline, yoga, brunch at Parc, 90-minute deep tissue massage, walking through a neighborhood flea market and meet up with my friends at a PHS seasonal beer garden for a drink and a bite to eat, quick stop to pick up a special teat for my dogs, short nap before going out to dinner.
