A bar named after Benjamin Franklin's first pen name plans to celebrate what would be the founding father's 312th birthday.
On Wednesday, Jan. 17, Silence DoGood's Tavern in Old City will offer quirky food & drink specials inspired by Philly's favorite guy.
The speciality cocktails will be The Kite & Key, a boozy blue concoction, and Electric Shock, spiked hot chocolate. If you remember to say, "Happy Birthday Ben," at the bar, each drink's price will be reduced by $2.
To eat, there will be $5 kite-shaped flatbread, a nod to the story of Franklin's famous kite-in-a-thunderstorm experiment.
