Red, White and Blue Happy Hours – Part 1

Loosen up for a patriotic holiday weekend

When Ben Franklin said “Beer is proof that God loves us and wants us to be happy,” he forgot to mention wine.  And signature cocktails.  And everything else that makes a Happy Hour, well, happy. Wawa Welcome America is here to correct the oversight. Round up your crew and join in the festivities at Red, White and Blue Happy Hours all around town. With drink and food specials galore, join the over- 21 crowd in a hearty “huzzah” for happy hours.
