Eating & Drinking Tours

This Summer has seen a veritable explosion of food and drink related tours in Philadelphia. There’s even one that’s an official event of the Welcome America celebration. The Tipplers Tour departs tomorrow from the Independence Living History Center (3rd & Chestnut Streets) and visits the Society Hill Hotel, the Plough & the Stars, Old Original Bookbinders and The City Tavern. Enjoy traditional drinks at colonial and modern-day watering holes as your guide shares tales of taverns of old.
