Baby, it’s cold outside and you need a drink. Here, with the help of Drink Philly and that ingenious #OpenInPHL hashtag on Twitter, we roundup of some of the Gayborhood bars with snow-day specials, early happy hours and drinks that taste best when there’s a chill in the air.
SNOW DAY SPECIALS:
Caribou Cafe (1126 Walnut St.): Stop in for Olivier Desaintmartin’s hot wine with cinnamon, orange, lemon and brown sugar, a recipe, according to Drink in Philly, that was developed by a pharmacist in France’s Champagne region in 1945.
