"Show Package Contents" in Mavericks

Before Mac OSX 10.9, you could "secondary click" an item in the Applications to get a menu with the option "Show Package Contents". In Mavericks, this option was removed from the menu.

In order to inspect the package contents, you can use the terminal:
$ cd /Applications
$ ls
...
MyApp
$ cd MyApp
$ ls
...
MyApp.app
...
$ cd MyApp.app
$ ls
Contents
$ cd Contents
$ ls
... 
$ open .

This last command will open the package contents in the Finder.
