One Year of Firsts: Lunching Above Philly

Day 43

The future is always beginning now. ~Mark Strand, Reasons for Moving

Is it KARMIC or what?? On the 43rd day of this One Year of Firsts blog, I had the opportunity to go to the 43rd floor of Comcast Headquarters in Philadelphia. (I swear, I didn't plan this). Take a look.

This is a view from Ralph's Cafe, named after Comcast founder Ralph Roberts. Can you imagine eating lunch here every day? Nice huh? (Bet they don't serve peanut butter and tuna here though.)

Yes, this is where all the Comcast employees in Philadelphia's tallest building dine while they look out over the city.  It is pretty Comcastic!

I should tell you, in case you don't know, this is home to my future employers. Comcast is buying all of NBC, which includes NBC10. I just happened to be in the building today to help with an interview. I thought it would be a fun first to see the view everyone raves about. I now see why.

All I can say is, I can't wait for my own employee pass to eat at Ralph's Cafe.
