Spring has finally sprung and the awful month of March has finally left us. Now that April has arrived it's time to celebrate all things spring, like warm weather, Easter, and Passover, and there's really no better way to celebrate than with good food and even better drinks.

So in order to do this spring celebration right, we suggest you head to Philly's newest hot spot, William Street Common.

William Street Common is the latest addition to the Philly biergarten scene, and is by far the best. With a big communal table to sit and enjoy awesome bites like warm pretzel bites, snack bacon and BBQ Short Ribs combined with a drink menu where everything is five bucks, you definitely can't go wrong. Yes, you did read that correctly, every drink on the entire menu is $5. This means you can get a Cool Rye Lemonade, a Sly Fox Helles Golden Lager or a refreshing Pinot Grigio for five dolla's. Plus, if you're super thirsty you can also get a whole pitcher of delicious beer for a measly $15 or a wine carafe for $20.

To make things even better (yes, it's hard to believe, but it gets even better) when you're done chowing (or chugging) down your meal, you can head outside to their patio for some fresh air or even head over to their vintage arcade space and play some games. That's where you can challenge your bros to a little skeeball or pinball fo' free, and impress the ladies with your mad skillz.

So instead of doing the same old thing this season, do something new; head over to William Street Common and kick off your spring right.
