Philly mag’s Victor Fiorillo was right about Sansom Street dive bar Oscar’s. Back in July, the writer called the Pennsylvania Liquor Control Board after believing he had been served an inferior bourbon disguised in a Maker’s Mark bottle.
While many commenters refused to believe that the beloved hole-in-the-wall was guilty of cheating its customers , the liquor-specializing branch of the state police investigated at Fiorillo’s request and after a scientific analysis, it turns out he was right - something was not kosher about that bottle of bourbon. Moral of the story? Don’t mess with a writer’s booze.
