A Philadelphia taxi cab rammed into Village Whiskey overnight. The cab put a pretty significant dent in the facade but no structural damage was caused to Jose Garces’s burger and whiskey joint. The bar opened on-time today at 11 a.m.
This isn’t the first time something like this has happened. A SEPTA bus plowed into Monk’s Cafe back in 2010.

Tommy Up is expanding his PYT joint to New York and D.C., and this month debuts a Fishtown tiki bar. The 42-year-old talks Jay Z, Japanese-mafia tattoos, and the best beef in Philadelphia. (Shocker: It’s not his.)

Because, you know, where else would you go to celebrate a thing like that?
Okay, so yeah. Really any bar would do. But Village Whiskey is leaning hard on their impressive collection of brown spirits to throw together a menu of Prohibition-era cocktails, all of which they’re letting go for half price today. Not enough? They’re also offering complimentary champagne. And draft specials (including some from 21st Amendment Brewery). And some music, too.
The festivities are going on all day long. So, if you're serious about your drinking, tell your boss that today is a religious holiday and get over there right now.
