Planning to spend a day in early May photographing Eastern Penitentiary near 22nd and Fairmount. Looking for hotels in the vicinity in a "good" area. Want to avoid downtown traffic.

I am coming with a group of girls on Friday September 21 2012 and preferably wanted to go to a male strip club but most of the good ones are closed on Friday. So another option is a good nightclub that will play hiphop/ r&b music but a very mixed crowed. Please help as the 21st is only 3 days away.
We are headed to Philly at the end of August to see a Phillies game. 2 adults, 3 kids 9,7,5. I'm trying to decide on a hotel but it will depend on getting around at night in Philly. I'm looking at a hotel in City Center near the Mkt. East Station or the Holiday Inn near the stadium. I prefer the City Center hotel but I'm worried about taking the metro (?) at night after the game. The Holiday Inn is in walking distance and it seems as though it's safe enough but the reviews on the hotel are not great. The third option is to simply stay wherever and driving to and from the game. Can anyone share their thoughts?
I will travel to the u.s. as a tourist and would like to use my smartphone(Samsung 1510 that uses the 3G) in USA , with a data package (100MB) --would be enough for 2 months). Please note that international roaming is too expensive in this case. I need these data packages,for example, to be able to use Skype. Guess the best in the sates are AT&T and T_Mobile? Can I, as a tourist use this service? I need to have an American address, not the address of the hotel? Can I make and receive local calls and SMS?How can I buy this service from Brazil? Need to change the cell chip? What is the cost? Which are the best companies to ask for? Thank you very much

Hello, I will be attending a convention the last week of March and would prefer to rent a studio or small apartment for that week. Can anyone recommend a reliable site for this, and also please tell me which area of town I should be looking for? Usually rentals are classified by neighborhoods and I don't know Philly! I've checked roomarama and airbnb, but didn't know where the places were located. Many thanks, Patti
I'll be going to the convention centre on Monday, a public holiday, and would like to know a safe place to park my car. I have a disabled sticker and am looking for a garage at a fair price, with enough space open my door fully. Don't really want an open lot. I would entertain parking further out (South Philly? and taking the metro in. Thanks
Hey guys - I'm doing some research for an art project and I'm curious if anyone can help me find some not-so-ordinary bathrooms to visit. They can be anywhere in the city, but preferably downtown somewhere. I know this is a unique request, but any help would be appreciated, thanks!

I'm visiting the hospital and was told the inn at Penn Hilton in University Park is a short walk to the hospital. Is this correct and is this a safe area to walk around. Also in general is this area safe and does it have local stores and places to eat.
My girlfriend and I are planning a 5-day, 3-city vacation. The first two days are in Washington DC, the third is in Philadelphia, the fourth is in New York, and for the fifth we are going back to DC. We are not staying the night in Philadelphia, we are just stopping their for the day on our way between DC and New York, so we do not have a way to store our luggage and do not want to drag it around the city with us. Does anyone know if Amtrak has any lockers near the 30th street station that we can rent for the day? Any Must Sees/Dos and travel tips for DC and Philly are also welcome....
Is there a web address/site or individual I can contact concerning long term parking e.g. 1 1/2 weeks adjacent to 30th Street Station Phila? Thanks in advance.
I left my suitcase in a cab, 3 days ago, I contacted several companies because I don't know which taxi I was driving with. I've put my suitcase (with all my wardrobe) in taxi's trunk and when I got out of it I forgot to take the suitcase out. I don't know what to do, I'm sending e mails, should I contact the police? It was really stupid of me to not picking my suitcase but I'm really desperate now. If you have any suggestions please let me know. Thanks

What is the area like around S. Broad and Walnut Street? We have hastily booked a room at the Holiday Inn Express Midtown and I have been searching for info on the area surrounding the hotel to no avail. So to all you locals, is the area decent?

This might be a long shot, but... a while back we saw a show on Foodnetwork (I think), about the best burger places around the country. One was near Philadelphia, something with 'moon' in the name. They serve burgers made from Bison and more exotic sources and we really want to go check it out. Any ideas what it might be called? Thanks :-)
