The Chilly Banana – Happy Friday!

It has been a bit of a hectic Friday in the office. For lunch I decided to hit the Indego Bike Station around the corner of my office at Dickinson Square. A twenty minute bike ride around Center City was perfect to clear my head. But it is June and pretty warm out there already, so I am finding…
