The hard-up-for-championships city of Philadelphia will be celebrating the Phillies World Series win last night with a parade down Market Street, around City Hall and south to Citizens Bank Park, where the team will host a victory party. (Get free tickets to that here.)
The parade leaves 20th and Market at about noon and will take about three hours to crawl its way to the ballpark. While there's bound to be plenty of excitement, do try to behave yourselves. Bozos be warned: You might end up with a bottle to the head if you climb a street light.

The deck is stacked against the Tampa Bay Rays, and the Philadelphia Phillies could win their second World Series tonight in front of a home crowd at Citizens Bank Park. If they do, you can bet rabid fans will take over the streets of South Philly--and the city's bars.
Top of the list for post-game partying is McGillin's Old Ale House, the city's oldest pub. Other venues worth checking out are Chickie's & Pete's (book ahead here) and McFadden's. The Philadelphia tourism board has even more ideas.
The city's tourism people also promise to update www.gophila.com/phillies with presumably-not-riot-y celebration info after--and if--the Phils win tonight.
