Pagano’s is some sort of market that is open during the day and serves things like sandwiches and salads, and other things quick lunch things to grab lunch before your next meeting. But, more importantly, Pagano’s has a huge outdoor patio that turns into a mob scene during SIPS in the summer. It has a huge fountain that we’ve personally watched more than a few people fall into after a couple of beers, and there’s a large Jumbotron screen that shows Phillies games and World Cup soccer. Essentially, it’s a place to get drunk with some coworkers after work on Wednesdays in the summer.
