There are so many positive aspects to being laid off - having time to cook and eat breakfast, starting a blog, getting back to my painting and the list goes on and on, including, finally being available to do Happy Hours!
Two I can recommend thus far are Anjou (206 Market Street) and Drinkers Pub (1903 Chestnut Street)
Drinker's Pub allows you to gorge yourself on $1 tacos, 25cent Wings and $1 Rolling Rock ponies- This is great blue collar fun!
However, my need to "dine" as often as my unemployment check will allow, makes me more partial to Anjou, which offers $3 sushi rolls from 4-6pm. I sampled their fresh and delicious: Spicy Tuna, California, Eel Avocado, Salmon and "Olde City" rolls, of which the secret ingredient is Philly cream cheese. As you may have noticed, for me, an enticing Happy Hour has more to do with the fare offered than the libations, and I have to admit $5 for Japanese beers and Mojitos isn't much of a drink discount, but they also offer $3 on tap beers.
Weather won't permit for long, but the other appealing part of Olde City Happy Hours in general, is the fact that their alfresco dining is very comfortable, plenty of space for diners, foot traffic and road traffic.
