Snow day specials to warm your spirits

Philadelphia Brewing Company has a heated outdoor area.

Snow is here and although it might not be the most pleasant weather to endure, a few top spots in Philly are offering some specials in the frigid temperatures to warm everyone’s spirit. 

Down in Old City, Red Owl Tavern is offering a Snow Day Special of a hot cup of mulled wine for just $1 with any food purchase on the menu. This specific special is going to be offered this week, but also every other time it snows in the City of Brotherly Love. In addition to the $1 cup of spirits, the hotspot also will adapt its Rainy Day Special into a Snow Day Special. On snowy days, guests can take 15% off pickup or delivery orders using the promo code RAIN which offers an array of items perfect for a wintry day, including creamy tomato bisque, a chef’s choice of Pasta of the Day, or a grilled chicken club with chipotle ranch and hickory bacon, served with fries. To order, guests can call the restaurant or order online at


The specials don’t stop there.

According to the release, Philadelphia Brewing Company, the city’s largest and oldest brewery, located in Kensington, is offering a wintry take on a Philly favorite: the Snow Day Citywide Special. Anytime it snows, guests can stop by the brewery to enjoy a Philadelphia classic revered year-round: A pint of your choice in draft beer and a well shot for $7. This offer is only available to sit-in at Philadelphia Brewing Company’s covered and heated courtyard patio.
