Wondering when and where CCD Sips will take place this year?
Every Wednesday from June 7 through Aug. 30, restaurants and bars in Center City will offer wine, beer and cocktail specials during happy hour, from 5-7 p.m.
At each participating location (there are close to 100), cocktails will be $5, wine will be $4, beer will be $3, and appetizers will be half-priced.
The majority of the $5 cocktails will feature Effen Vodka (50 Cent owns a vodka, remember?), this year's Sips sponsor, but food & drink will vary at each bar and restaurant.
Many Sips hot spots have posted their specials, displayed in a new layout that makes navigation easier.
Also new this year, fashion and beauty retailers are taking part in CCD Sips and are offering in-store specials every Wednesday before happy hour begins.
There will be opportunities to win Center City shopping sprees, too. Center City District asks Sips attendees to post a picture of their outfit on Instagram (tagging @ShopCenterCity and using #CCDSipsStyle) to enter the contest each week.
And if you just can't wait for June 7, there will be a Sips preview party at Marathon Grill (1818 Market St.) on Wednesday, May 31.
Wednesdays from June 7 through Aug. 30
5-7 p.m. | Pay-as-you-go
