Battle of the bars

Imagine walking into a bar and the prices of the drinks were similar to that of the dollar menu at McDonalds. Life would be wonderful, bartenders would be rich and college students would forever be drunk. Unfortunately, it does not work that way and most bars cost an arm and six legs to purchase a drink. But we have taken the liberty of searching high and low to find you the best drink specials up and down Route 30 straight though the City of Brotherly Love. Whether your preference is drinking till the sun comes up, throwing a sack of pennies on the bar for a Miller Lite or looking for the best margarita on this side of Pennsylvania, we have it all.

Now you have on your best jeans, last night’s makeup and you have decided that on any random night of the week you are ready to go out and party. Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, it doesn’t matter -any day is a good day.

Find your way down to Christopher’s A Neighborhood Place in Wayne for $2 Late Night Happy Hour every Sunday through Thursday from 10 p.m. to midnight. Then start your week off right with Fajita Rita Mondays at Chili’s where the tequila lover in all of us can enjoy 10 oz. mugs of their original Top Shelf or Caribbean Margaritas for only $2.

Tuesday’s can be enjoyed by all starting at 8 p.m. at Brownies 23 East with $1.75 Coors Lights until midnight and can be finished up back at Christopher’s for their new college special: $1 drinks and drafts from 11 p.m. to 1 a.m.

Feeling like the city instead? Try McFadden’s for $1 Miller Lite bottles while enjoying open mic night. Corona time anyone? Enjoy as many ice cold Corona’s as you can between 9 p.m. to 11 p.m. at the Wild Onion for only $2 a bottle, people life does not get any better.

Where better to go on a Wednesday night than the Wayne Beef & Ale for bar bingo and $2 Miller Lite’s from 9 p.m. to midnight. If money is tight and you find yourself a designated driver, Bootleggers on MacDade Boulevard. is the place to be. Present your college ID and get in for free and enjoy live music and $.50 drinks from 10 p.m. to 1 a.m. No driver? Try Brownies 23 East for a $5 cover charge, same drink special from 10 p.m. to midnight.

Well, Thursday night is finally here and so are the best specials. Chemistry Nightspot in Manyunk runs a little something on “Absolute Thursday’s” called $2 “You Call It” from 9 p.m. to midnight, you get the point with this one. Visit Finnigan’s Wake for the Lager Concert Series and enjoy the areas best cover bands all while sipping on $1 Coors Light, Yuengling and Yuengling Lite bottles. Tired of this area yet? Try one of the best party scenes at West Chester University and put your party hat on for 15 North Caf
