Summer has begun, which means only one thing: Sips! A summer happy hour tradition that takes place every Wednesday, Sips is the best excuse to get your butt to the city after 5pm and enjoy some awesome drink specials at over 80 locations. “What are the specials Melissa?” you may ask. $5 cocktails, $4 wine, $3 beer and half-priced appetizers. Yup, pretty amazing. One of the best aspects of Sips is that you can visit different restaurants and try delicious cuisines that you normally wouldn’t be able to afford or what not. The prices are so decent that anyone can enjoy the many levels of “happy” achieved from Summertime Wednesday evenings in Philadelphia. Another perk: free parking all over Philly! My goal one summer was to visit all of the bars/restaurants hosting the Sips special, but I only made it to 1/3 of them. This year, I’m aiming high and going to go for the gold.
