In Philadelphia dive bars, a shot of whiskey and a beer sold together at a discount price; most commonly a can of Paps Blue Ribbon and a shot of Jim Beam for $3-5.
Philly lore is that the Citywide Special started at Bob and Barbara’s on the South St in the 1990s, where “The Special” was Beam and PBR for $3.
