Why dingey, divey Ray's Happy Birthday Bar is the best place to age in Philly

I arrive at the intersection of Passyunk Avenue and Federal Street a few hours before my birthday officially starts. The sandwich board outside offers birthday wishes to Toni and Linda, who are in attendance, and to Nov. 17 celebrities who are not: Rock Hudson, Lee Strasberg, and Martin Scorsese.

1200 E. Passyunk Ave.,  215-365-1169, thehappybirthdaybar.com

    Why dingey, divey Ray's Happy Birthday Bar is the best place to age in Philly
    I don't care much for vodka, or for birthday cake. So I know in advance that birthday-cake vodka will be terrible. Still, I'm committed. After all, that sweet-acrid flavor? That's the taste of celebrating another year in the world at the best place to age in Philly: Ray's Happy Birthday Bar.
