Old City Eats will make your Thursdays much more tasty

Foodies rejoice! Old City will be the place to be on Thursday nights with the debut of Old City Eats. From now until through August 25th, over 32 restaurants and bars in the area will offer five dollar drink specials, half off appetizers, chef collaborations, seasonal cocktails and special dishes you won’t find on the regular menu.
