The 2016 Summer Olympics are in full swing and these popular Philadelphia spots are going for the gold with their Olympic-themed events and specials.
Olympians’ diets are just as rigorous as their training leading up to the games; nutrient-rich superfoods keep the athletes strong and healthy. Square 1682 Executive Chef and former competitive gymnast Caitlin Mateo has prepared a Superfood Lunch Tray with a Superfood Salad consisting of kale, spinach, quinoa and shrimp for $20.50. Each tray is served with a complimentary 8 oz juice. Looking for an alcoholic beverage? Spike the juice with cachaça for an extra $5 or try a Caipirinha – Brazil’s national cocktail – for $9.

This popular Philly sports bar is a go-to for all broadcasted sports events. Between the overabundance of TVs, craft beers and games, Field House is sure to win gold every time. Show your SEPTA Regional rail ticket anytime during the games and you’ll receive a Yards draft for only $4! #Winning.

V for Victory! During the games, all Victory Brewing Company beers are only $5 at both City Tap House locations. Talk about a big win! All of the Olympic events will be broadcasted on their big screen TVs so you won’t miss out on any of your favorite events. Hopefully Tap House’s special is foreshadowing for the US in Rio!
