The 2016 Democratic National Convention is in town and that means getting political, spotting celebs, rallying with your friends and so much more. All of this activity sure does make a person hungry and the Philly food scene has stepped up to the plate to feed in-town delegates as well as Philadelphians with #DNCDEALS. These specials give you the most bang for your buck when dining out. Here are a few of our faves to get you started.

Located steps away from the Liberty Bell, Red Owl Tavern is offering #DNCDEALS during lunch with the Red Owl Tavern Burger paired with the Dock Street collaborative beer, Red Awl — a Red Owl exclusive for $20.16. Just thirsty? They’ve whipped up a special DNC cocktail, too, called I’m with Her(b). The concoction, a blend of Bacardi Superior Rum, herb-infused Doling Blanc Vermouth, Cointreau and Grenadine is priced at $12.
121 S 17th St
Located near Rittenhouse, Square 1682’s Chef Caitlin Mateo is cooking up Staff Meal Trays for #DNCDEALS. What’s a Staff Meal Tray exactly? It’s a multi-course dinner that comes with a 7 oz. Miller Highlife pony.
