Beer Week Counter-Programming
Has Philly Beer Week already blown out your taste buds? Too many IPAs? Then maybe some negronis or sherry are what the palate doctor ordered. It’s Negroni Week and more than thirty bars and restaurants are participating. Everyone from Avance to Zahav are participating with a portion of proceeds going to the charity of the bar’s choice.
