Yesterday, had a late lunch at Fishing with Dynamite. Had been there once before and enjoyed it, but this little meal was damn near perfect. Their tonnato and heirloom tomato toast (recent addition to the menu) might be the best thing I've eaten in a while. Then later, spotted the Guerrilla Taco truck outside Silverlake Wine. Was initially a bit miffed about how expensive the tacos and how long the orders took. But then I realized that they're expletive-inducing good.

how dare the Obama administration not give Al Qaeda the kind of recognition it wants!
In today's installment, our dimwit protagonist attempts the crudest sort of Marxist analysis--not just reducing everything to economic realities in the last instance, but actually denying patent facts (i.e., a jingoistic slogan isn't patriotic! Patriotism can't be patriotism if there's an opposition to the government!) to make everything a claim about economic realities. Nice try, dimwit protagonist! This is better than your usual efforts!

Magpies was disappointing. Girlfriend got the honey yuzu (a little mild on the yuzu flavor), which was better than my strawberry rhubarb (mostly just acidic). We agreed that we both preferred something cheap like the cones at Chik-fil-A. The only consolation was standing in line in front of a B list celebrity.
There was a deep streak of melancholy in the biopic about him. RIP
I think that'd be fine.My original improper example would be fine if the use of the word "is" (in "Pork roll is Philly") were literally true rather than meaning something like "Pork roll exemplifies something about Philly." I guess your example skirts around that by applying the phrase "[a]nything Philly," which is shorthand for "anything that comes from Philly in such a way that it captures something essential about that city."
