Where to find snow day specials in Philly

Philly could get 3 to 5 inches of snow Wednesday

Food & Drink Snow Day
Carroll - Snow falls in West Philadelphia Thom Carroll/PhillyVoice

A couple trudges along a sidewalk as snow accumulates along 46th Street in West Philadelphia on Wednesday, March 21, 2018.

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.

UPDATE: We've also added a list of places offering today-only deals. Scroll to the bottom for the list.
