The Philadelphian’s 13-Step Guide to the Best Holiday Ever

Not only is American Sardine Bar open, with normal service and a late-night happy hour (11 p.m. to 1 a.m.); manager Joe Shotkus has instructed the staff to “Griswold the f***” out of the outdoor patio, so we’re guessing you can expect quite a light display. 1800 Federal Street, Point Breeze.

Dedicated drinkers know that if you’re looking for a place to imbibe during the holidays, the Khyber Pass Pub should be at the top of your list. The crew isn’t doing anything special for the day, but they’re open, and that’s special enough all on its own. 56 South 2nd Street, Old City.

For a certain Tom Waits-ian segment of the population, there’s no better place to ride out Christmas than at Philly’s favorite dive, Dirty Franks. And we can guarantee you won’t be doing it alone. 347 South 13th Street, Midtown Village.

Franklin Square’s Electrical Spectacle Holiday Light Show balances bulbs (more than 50,000 of them, dancing to a soundtrack by the Philly POPS) with booze (a winter beer garden each weekend, and plenty of fire pits) and shopping. 6th and Race streets, Philly.

    The Philadelphian's 13-Step Guide to the Best Holiday Ever
    Sure, there are some people who've been listening to Christmas music since October. For the rest of us, the holidays signal endless to-do lists, the death march of mall traffic, awkward office parties, and forced time with extended family. But with a bit of planning and know-how, navigating the holidays can be a breeze-and maybe even, gasp, fun.
