About me

Gender MALE
Location Blue Bell Hill, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, United States
Introduction Dan Allen lives in Philadelphia's Blue Bell Hill neighborhood. He eats a lot of cheese, drinks a lot of beer, and thinks that you should too. He also loves to write and talk about these and other things pertaining to good food and drink. As much as possible, he follows a locavore life style, meaning that most of what he eats, drinks, and writes about is local to Philadelphia and environs. (By the way, he tends to go on and on about all this, so unless you have a lot of time on your hands, it's best that you not get him started.)
Favorite Movies Wings of Desire, The Dead (the John Huston one; not the one with zombies), The Station Agent, anything with talking animals, City Lights.
Favorite Music Everything except all that lousy stuff.
Favorite Books Dante's Inferno, The Hero with a Thousand Faces, Mrs. Dalloway, The Waves, Ulysses, The Collected Poems of W. B. Yeats, The Collected Poems of Patrick Kavanagh, Housekeeping, The Wind in the Willows, Dubliners, Little House in the Big Woods, The Sun Also Rises, A Movable Feast, At Swim-Two-Birds, Anton Chekhov, Raymond Carver, Tobias Wolff.
