"Go here for a Tuesday nite..." Mcgillian's Olde Ale House Tip by DrexelDragon

$4 pitchers of beer, and the best chicken wings in Philly. And, the wings are $0.15 each, but all of this is only on Tuesday nites.

It is the oldest bar in Philly, and it's got good atmosphere. Upstairs isn't as big as downstairs, but it's better place to find a place to sit if you arrive later. Downstairs has TV's set up around which is good for game nites.

There's nothing special about the beer, because it's the wings. They are so good. They are MEATY!! They are covered in just the perfect amt. of wing sauce as well. Also, there's no problem in asking for more celery and blue cheese if you want it.

Dress Code: Don't wear anything too extravagant, but people do tend to get doll'ed up a bit. I generally don't wear anything that I don't want to get wing sauce on.

Directions: 13th and Drury...have fun finding it...HINT: it's on the south side of Market in a little alley.
