Thirty-Five Year Old Sassafras Celebrates Five Year Anniversary


It has been five years since Donal McCoy and Neil Laughlin purchased Old City bar institution Sassafras, and the restaurant is celebrating with a party today, Thursday, May 16. The festivities get under way at 5 p.m. with five dollar food and drink specials, like hibiscus mojitos and beer battered fish bites. The party really gets going at 6 p.m. when Philadelphia rocker Kenn Kweder takes the stage. This should be a fun celebration worth checking out at one of Philly’s classic bars.

The entire menu of $5 specials for the party are the following:

  • Hibiscus (or regular) Mojitos
  • Handcrafted well Manhattans & Martinis
  • Handcrafted mixed well drinks
  • Craft drafts (all six)
  • House wine pours
  • House made Cherry Pepper Hummus & Pita
  • Beer Battered Fish Bites With House made Tartar
  • Hand cut Fully Loaded Fries (chili and cheese or black pepper gravy)
  • Buffalo Wings with our three dipping sauces (barbecue, teriyaki and buffalo)
