A winter storm is expected Wednesday, with Philly potentially receiving 3 to 5 inches of snow.
And you know what that means? Snow day!
Below is a roundup of bars and restaurants that will offer snow day specials any time the city declares a snow day, or Philadelphia schools are closed.
Since the School District of Philadelphia announced Tuesday afternoon that all city public schools will be closed, that means you can enjoy all of these snow day specials on Wednesday.
