Tourism Board Travel: Cheap Wine In Philly
The Greater Philadelphia Tourism Marketing Corp. is yet again touting its ability to get you drunk on the cheap. The organization is pressing to make BYOBs (bring-your-own-bottle restaurants) as synonymous with Philadelphia as cheesesteaks, soft pretzels and Rocky, it says. [Ed note: It's working!]
The tourism board's site has introduced an interactive BYOB restaurant map that gives locations, descriptions and directions to the more than 200 restaurants in the city that allow patrons to bring along their own bottle of booze.
The map also includes the sites of liquor stores in relation to the eateries, and can be searched by restaurant name, cuisine or according to neighborhood. Click on the mini bottles of booze lining the streets to reveal a bubble of text describing the restaurant, its hours and the address of the closest liquor store. Sort of like our maps--only tipsy.
