McGillin's Old Ale House Thom Carroll/PhillyVoice

McGillin's Old Ale House is a rather popular destination for Uber users on Thanksgiving Eve.

Restaurants, bars and shops are using #DNCdeals on Twitter to let those in Philly known where to find drinks, food and goods inspired by the DNC. Scrolling through the extensive list of Twitter posts can get exhausting, however, so we created a roundup of food and drink offers below.
