Though the "noble experiment" of Prohibition failed, other noble experiments, such as teaching horses how to shoot guns and giving suffrage to any horse that can shoot a gun, were huge successes. Celebrate the failure of the 18th Amendment with today's Groupon: for $5, you get $10 worth of bar fare and drinks at the Forest Inn on Penn Street, two blocks from the Sovereign Center.
The Forest Inn's staff fills empty breadbaskets with staple bar grub and quenches parched pouts with more than two dozen types of beer. Challenge a friend or a foe to an eating contest and knock back a Coney Island hot dog ($1.75), a treat popularized on the boardwalks of Monopoly. Sink teeth into a hamburger topped with mouthwatering chili, onions, and mustard ($2), and celebrate thorough chewing with a bottle of beer ($2.50–$3.50) or a martini ($6). The snack set can nosh on fresh-cut fries ($2.50), a dozen corn nuggets ($3.95), or a foursome of mozzarella sticks ($3.95).
The Forest Inn has more than 670 Facebook friends.
