Best happy hours in Philly?
It has been a rough day and I could use some happy! Please, Chowhounders, what are your favorite places to happy hour in Philly? Center City is preferable, and you don't have to limit it to Tuesdays (I've heard something about an awesome spread at Striped Bass on Fridays...?). Thanks in advance!
In Center City:
best deal: mcgillins
best girly martinis: continental
best margaritas: tequilas
best outdoor seating: rouge or brasserie perrier
best friday spread: stripped bass
best early bird happy hour deals (4:30-6): mccormick and shmicks
best 80s drinks: alfa
best beer selection: monks
best bar and bar food: good dog
best brewery (although that isn't saying much): nodding head (they offer NO specials)
tampopo (jewelers row) has 30% off sushi M-F 5:30-7. Not sure though if their other location has it.
also, Mortons used to have free filet sandwiches & $5 martinis at the bar area on Fridays, but might no longer do this.
independence brewpub gets my vote for $3 drafts (LOVE the kolsch... it's so rare to find and they do it really well) and $3 bar menu.
monks is always fab, but also always super-crowded.
