In Center City Philadelphia, there is no shortage of events geared toward the upwardly mobile, social-networking, business-savvy mogul-in-their-own-mind types. Galas, singles nights, even generic bar specials are a place to see what is going on in while sipping on a $5 martini.
But say your friends wanna come along; you know, the ones without the cushy jobs or who just got laid off this year? Do you give up your happy hour business card swap meet to slum it over some Philly specials? Do you force your pals to go into shock for another round of shots at full price?
But with Center City Sips, no one is left out in the cold. Because with $2 beers, $3 wine, $4 cocktails and half-priced apps, anyone can be a Center City snob. And this bargain basement special is good at any participating Sips establishment.
Rub elbows with the elite at places like Bistro St. Tropez, Palace at the Ben and Pearl. Try out the hot spots, like the upscale newbies Union Trust steakhouse and Chifa. And hit up your old haunts like the Irish Pub and Doc Watsons. Its all in play at the summer’s best drink special event.
If you wanna really live it up this summer, create a card with all participating bars and see if you can hit them all before the close of the summer. You will have your work cut out for you though. With 80 different restaurants and bars to try, you will have to hustle. Check out the full list at www.centercityphila.org.
Center City Sips runs every Wednesday through the end of August.
