EVENT: Center City Sips with The Citizen, the Linebacker, and the Professor

Join us at Chops at the Comcast Center to kick off Connor Barwin’s Civic Season, the Eagles all-star’s comparison of the civic health of Philadelphia versus that week’s on-field opponent.

The Philadelphia Citizen is pumped to have Barwin as a contributor again this season. Each week, after bleeding Eagle green on the field, the linebacker will compare data from each city to find the civic winner—and highlight an innovative idea from each of our opponents’ hometowns. Like last year, his wingman on this adventure is Professor Richardson Dilworth of Drexel’s Center for Public Policy, who has forgotten more about cities than most of us will ever know.

The Center City Sips event will include drink and appetizer specials, DJ Johnny Looch, and a special appearance by Barwin and Dilworth–sign up for The Citizen mailing list & have a complimentary drink on us!

The Philadelphia Citizen will only publish thoughtful, civil posts. We want to be a communal space. But that doesn’t mean you have a First Amendment right to be an idiot. Send us an insulting, offensive and/or wildly off-topic comment and not only will we refrain from posting it -- we will laugh at you before we hit delete.
