I just got word from Penn 6 co-owner Tim Adams that his business partners, the folks who run Penn 6, City Tap House, and Field House, want to offer a $10,000 reward to anyone with information that leads to the arrest of the people who attacked the two gay men last week in Center City.

The incident, which happened last Thursday night at 16th and Chancellor streets, is being investigated as a hate crime/assault and robbery. Philadelphia police released this video today that shows a group of people who they’ve identified as suspects.
