Citizens Bank Park Purchased $319,605 Worth of Liquor and Wine Last Year
The folks over at The Philly Post got their hands on the top 100 Philly customers of the Pennsylvania Liquor Control Board from 2011. For a store or establishment to buy liquor or wine in Pennsylvania, they must go through the PLCB. So, this is a good measure of who moves the most product (or has the most useless inventory) in Philly.
Who bought the most? Del Frisco’s. Aided by their three-story wine tower, the high-end steakhouse bought $879,127 worth of goods from the PLCB last year.
That’s swell and all, but I found some more notable customers:
Delilah’s Den bought the most among strip clubs. They came in at number seven, with $582,304 worth of purchases. That’s a lot of titties doused in Andre.
Citizens Bank Park, which you would think would buy mostly beer, not liquor, came in at number 34, with $319,605 worth of purchases. That’s interesting, because I’m willing to bet they’re selling the goods for at least 5x its worth. So, figure they sold about $1.5 million (just a guess) worth of liquor and wine last season. And that’s probably a low number.
And that doesn’t include number 66 on the list– McFadden’s Ballpark, who bought $221,591 worth of liquor and wine in 2011.
Allen Iverson would be proud of number 73 on the list– T.G.I. Friday’s on City Line. They bought $208,802 worth of goods from the PLCB last year. You know, just in case the Answer ever came by.
