WATCH: A tribute to Philly's Citywide Special

A can of Pabst Blue Ribbon and a shot of Jim Beam, on special late at night at Bob and Barbara's.

Words often fail to describe the wonders of the Citywide Special — the shot and beer combination served at bars across Philadelphia. But Scott Coudriet, owner of Lloyd Whiskey Bar in Fishtown, sums it up perfectly in a recent Playboy video dedicated to the special: "...the training wheels for the young alcoholics on a budget."

Traditionally a Pabst Blue Ribbon and a shot of Jim Beam for about $3 (but offered in a variety of other combinations), the Citywide gets a proper tribute from Coudriet as well as the folks over at El Bar and some proud Philadelphia drinkers in Playboy’s video.
