Over at the Metro, Arthur Etchells has a rundown of Wednesday happy hour specials. Why Wednesday? The Center City District just kicked off Center City Sips, a new event with $1 appetizers, $2 beers, $3 wine, $4 cocktails and free parking at over 30 restaurants and bars. Highlights include $1 oysters on the half shell from Oceanaire Seafood Room, Bistro St. Tropez’s chicken brochettes with gruyere fondue, $2 Mojo IPAs and Victory Prima Pils courtesy of Tavern 17 and a $4 “Brasserie Lemonade” (vodka and muddled lemon-basil mixed with lemonade) from Brasserie Perrier. We also recommend trying out the $4 Leblon Caiprinhas and Blini Martinis at Davios and, also at Tavern 17, $1 snap fried calamari steak.
