Join the friendly staffers of the City Paper Wed. Oct. 18 at Republic Garden and Lounge for a hump day happy hour celebrating the latest issue of bar guide SWIG. We’ve switched up SWIG’s design and layout and we promise it’s chock-full of boozy tales, cocktail hacks, and extensive bar listings.

Republic will offer special deals including 50 percent off bottles of wine and Champagne (under $200), 50 percent off punch bowls, 20 percent off speciality cocktails and food, $5 draft beers, and $5 premium wells.

The event is sponsored by Ciroq French Vanilla, Crown Vanilla, and the David Aylor Law Firm, and is co-presented by yours truly and Radtab, an app that gives you peace of mind by opening your tab before you walk in the bar and allows you to leave the venue unannounced because Radtab will tip and pay your bill automatically and then your receipt will be emailed to you while you are on “your way to your next adventure.”
