Marc Zumoff, the former sportscaster for the Philadelphia 76ers for the last 27 years, has been enjoying retired life since closing his chapter on television in June.

We spoke to the Northeast Philadelphia native about what would make his perfect day in the city:

Breakfast: Sabrina's Cafe near the art museum on Callowhill Street to get the challah french toast and an omelet.

After breakfast: Go for a bike ride along the Schuylkill River Trail or take a walk through Old City.

Afternoon: On a good-weather day, visit the Rail Park, which Zumoff called one of his favorites because "it's just a place to chill." If the weather isn't great, Zumoff likes the Barnes Foundation.

Lunch: Famous 4th Street Delicatessen's turkey special.

  • "I'm Jewish so I'm a huge deli guy," he said.

Early evening: Yoga at Maha Yoga on Samson Street before heading to the Italian Market or South Street if he's "feeling adventurous."

Dinner: Sang Kee Peking Duck House on 9th Street in Chinatown.

  • "In the winter time, there's nothing better to warm the tummy than noodle soup," he said.

Late night: Get a drink at Charlie was a sinner. Bourbon neat in the winter. Moscow mule in the summer.
