Experience a taste of Colonial tavern life
May 26 – December 29, 2016 (select days)
From May through December, the over-21 set can sing along to 18th-century drinking songs, enjoy stories of the drinking traditions of Colonial times and sample drinks and snacks as they ramble through Historic Philadelphia with a Colonial guide.
Tipplers stop at local watering holes and, along the way, learn important information, such as Benjamin Franklin’s names for a drunk person (“nimptopsical” and “tipsicum grave”).
Tours embark from the Independence Visitor Center at 6th and Market streets.
