Happy National Memo Day! Our holdings are brimming with memorandums from a variety of government agencies. Memorandums are written messages which can document anything: the installation of a new water fountain, organizational changes, policies, and much more. Featured here is a memorandum related to the archaeological investigation at El Morro, which is part of the San Juan National Historic Site in Puerto Rico. This memo details the work that has already been performed and also includes photographic attachments to document progress made on the dig. Check out the rest of this memo here: https://catalog.archives.gov/id/40304916. Want to learn more about our holdings?

Queen Village's Hungry Pigeon is now open all day!

    Philadelphia's New Crop Of All Day, Every Day Eats
    Hunger doesn't keep to shifts, so neither do Philly restaurants. Philadelphia has long had an all-day-and-night dining scene. But until recently, that scene was limited to diners and those famous cheesesteak spots. Today, in neighborhoods throughout the city and region, upper-scale restaurants have adapted meal service to a more flexible schedule.

    There are people out there who love Peruvian food, and there are people who've never tried it. No one falls in between. Vista Peru is a potato lover's paradise. All Peruvian restaurants are, really. They're places where the potato is taken in strange new directions - used as filling, like bread, as a center-plate star - and respected as the miraculous tuber it is.
