Attention all Philly friends: we’re sure most of you are familiar with Sips. For those of you not in Philadelphia, here’s another reason to visit our amazing city! This June, the much-anticipated warm-weather Happy Hour tradition, Center City District Sips will return to Center City Philadelphia. Beginning June 7 and continuing through September, Center City District Sips (CCD Sips) takes place Wednesday evenings from 5:00 p.m.-7:00 p.m. at participating bars and restaurants. More than 80 official participating bars and restaurants will offer $5 cocktails featuring Effen Blood Orange or Effen Green Apple Vodka, $4 wine, $3 beer and half-priced appetizers.
For the first time, Center City retailers are invited to join in the season’s festivities through the launch of CCD Sips Style Guide presented by American Express. An initiative in partnership with the Philadelphia Retail Marketing Alliance (PRMA), stores and salons will offer promotions, samples or discounts every Wednesday before Sips for shoppers to get ready before happy hour. Amazing, right?! Who doesn’t like a good deal! This style guide will live on the Center City District website and highlight the local retailers participating in the CCD Sips Style Guide. From hair blowouts to free gifts with purchase and in-store cocktails, all retail promotions will take place on Wednesdays prior to the start of Sips at 5:00 p.m
Now, here’s the part where we come in. We are so excited to announce that we’ve been asked to be the Style Ambassadors for CCD Sips this year, along with Davida of Vida Fashionista.
