Toast to 15 years at 12 Steps Down’s quinceañera

Over the last decade and a half, hundreds of thousands of tourists visiting the Italian Market have innocently walked past the corner of Ninth and Christian with no clue one of the city's best dive bars is right under their nose...or rather, toes, since 12 Steps Down is actually in a basement. The bar, where it's kind of a shame smoking is allowed because the food is really better than it ought to be, is throwing a party to celebrate 15 years in biz. There's outdoor tables too, in case you want to avoid the cigs.

Where: 12 Steps Down at 831 Christian St. 19147

When: September 30, 2017 at 9:00 a.m. to October 1, 2017 at 2:00 a.m.
