Your Guide To Center City Sips

Your weekly happy hour is about to get even happier: Center City Sips, one of the best parts of summer in Philadelphia, is set to return on June 6! –Chelsea Karnash

What: Center City Sips is a Wednesday night happy hour special that runs throughout the summer months. Specials include $5 cocktails, $4 wine, $3 beer and half-off appetizers. Some restaurants also offer 15% dinner discounts after the happy hour is over.

When: This year's Sips starts on Wednesday, June 6th, and runs through Wednesday, August 29th. Make a prompt exit from work on Wednesdays if you can, though: the special only lasts from 5 – 7 p.m. And FYI: Sips specials will still be offered at many spots on Wednesday, July 4th, so you can drink to America's Independence!
