$47.50, Two LPs at AKA Music: Pallbearer’s Sorrow & Extinction, and a Chicago soul compilation released by Numero Group titled “Eccentric Soul: The Nickel & Penny Labels.”

$14, Bulleit Rye x 2 (plus tip) at Fiume.

$25.30, Bacon, asparagus, arugula, cheese and a cucumber at Mariposa Food Co-op.

$2, SEPTA fee to travel via trolley and subway from West Philadelphia to Fishtown.
