Center City Sips: Love or Hate?


Center City Sips, summer’s weekly excuse to show up at work on Thursday with a hangover, is well under way. And every year, we hear from bartenders and regulars alike how much they can’t stand it, much like Restaurant Week. It’s for amateurs is the sentiment. Some call it a “shitshow”.

The bars get overcrowded. Service declines. The worst wines are poured. In some cases, the “special” cocktails are pre-mixed. And the drinkers tend to be stingy. This is what we hear.

But what do you think? Has Sips made Wednesday the worst night to drink in the city? Or do these bartenders need to shut up and be happy they have jobs?
