This Week’s Center City Sips Picks: Tavern On Broad, Fieldhouse, Moriarty’s

Each Wednesday between the hours of 5PM-7PM the areas of Avenue of the Arts, Center City East, Center City West, and Rittenhouse Square participate in Center City Sips. Over 80 participating locations have $5 cocktails, $4 wines, $3 beers, and appetizer discounts. Here are this week’s best deals:

Tavern On Broad: Tavern On Broad is one of the best known drinking spots in the city. They’re the only location participating in Center City Sips that extends the discount time until 10PM. Here you’ll be able to have any water ice flavor of your choice mixed with vodka.

Fieldhouse: Goose Island IPA and Bud Light is the specialty beer of the week for Center City Sips at Field House. This sports themed establishment also cornered both Pinot Noir and Pinot Grigio as their discounted wines during its Wednesday mixer.

Moriarty’s: Moriarty’s is an Irish pub that offers $5 nachos, cheap mozzarella sticks, and chicken fingers. You’ll pretty much get every staple on the bar food menu at this place. You’ll also be able to sip on $3 Corona during Sips.

This Week’s Old City Eats Picks: Campo’s, Mac’s Tavern, Race Street Cafe

Each Thursday between the hours of 5PM-8PM Philadelphia historic district Old City participates in Old City Eats. Over 25 participating locations have half-priced appetizers, $4 beers, $5 cocktails, and other drink specials. Here are this week’s best deals:

Campo’s: Judging by the features and logo on the front of the building, there’s one guess as to the special at Campo’s for Old City Eats. Here you will get a cheesesteak and a beer for $10. Stella Artois, Tröegs Sumer Pils, and Victory Summer Love are the beers with the best deals.

Mac’s Tavern: Mac’s Tavern has great buffalo chicken egg rolls on their appetizer menu during Old City Eats. The Market Street pub also has Tröegs Sunshine pils cans, and Faber cocktails available during these hours for cheap.

Race Street Cafe: Half-priced anything is always a great thing. When its fired calamari and quesadillas, the discount is even better. Come to Race Street Cafe to try both and their famous 208 Sun Up cocktail and more.
