My Favorite Philly Tradition – Center City Sips!

Summer has begun, which means only one thing: Sips! A summer happy hour tradition that takes place every Wednesday, Sips is the best excuse to get your butt to the city after 5pm and enjoy some awesome drink specials at over 80 locations. “What are the specials Melissa?” you may ask. $5 cocktails, $4 wine, $3 beer and half-priced appetizers. Yup, pretty amazing. One of the best aspects of Sips is that you can visit different restaurants and try delicious cuisines that you normally wouldn’t be able to afford or what not. The prices are so decent that anyone can enjoy the many levels of “happy” achieved from Summertime Wednesday evenings in Philadelphia.  Another perk: free parking all over Philly! My goal one summer was to visit all of the bars/restaurants hosting the Sips special, but I only made it to 1/3 of them. This year, I’m aiming high and going to go for the gold. 🙂

Check out all of the locations and their specials here. To keep up with any Sips updates, make sure to also follow them @CCDSips.

Two Hours of Center City Bliss: Sips 2010

Ahh yes, it’s that time of year again everyone! Center City Sips has officially begun starting last Wednesday at restaurants and bars all over Center City Philadelphia! One of the best happy hour events during the summer, Sips is a great way to spend your Wednesday evening with co-workers, friends and random strangers in the heart of the city. Specials include $2 beers, $3 wines, $4 cocktails and half-priced appetizers at all participating locations. Try a restaurant you wouldn’t normally be able to afford or go to a bar in a new part of the city! The best part is that some of the locations are even offering a 15% dinner discount if you stay past happy hour starting at 7:00pm.

Center City Sips will last from June 2 through August 25, 2010, from 5-7:00 pm. Follow them on Twitter for the latest news and updates @CCDSips. For official participants and locations, click here!
