Brian McManus’ book, Philadelphia’s Best Dive Bars hits stores this week. While we here at Foobooz are more than familiar with the Center City dive bar scene, we thought we’d ask McManus for his more off-the-beaten path suggestions elsewhere in town. Anyone up for a (cheap) drink?

Dear friends and patrons of fIUME,
Between St. Patty’s, Mardi Gras & Spring Break, there’s been some less than savory celebration in and about Philadelphia. Gladly, fIUME has played host to virtually none of it. But as of now, anyone who looks like they’ve been drinking on Bourbon Street for the last 10 hours will not be admitted. It’s not that kind of party here.
