Philadelphia is a great place to be in the summer. We’ve got Sips to look forward to every Wednesday and every Thursday, we’ve got Old City Eats for the second year in a row.

It highlights Old City’s food scene that now includes 80 restaurants, bars, coffee shops and more.

“Our focus for Old City Eats is spotlighting the neighborhood’s impressive and evolving list of dining options,” says Old City District Executive Director Job Itzkowitz. “With more than 25 restaurants and bars participating [this year], there’s something to appeal to every palette.

Every Thursday from 5:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m., participating restaurants will offer at least one half-priced appetizer and at least one $4 beer featuring Penn Beer and one $5 cocktail featuring Faber Liquors. (Both Penn Beer and Faber Liquors are sponsoring Old City Eats this year.)
