PHILADELPHIA, June 22 /PRNewswire/ -- Even though "Grilled Charlie Sandwiches" are not on the menu, fans of the hit TV show It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia are sure to flock to Mac's Tavern, the real-life bar that Rob McElhenney and Kaitlin Olsen, also known as Mac and Sweet Dee of Always Sunny, opened this month in Philadelphia's Old City neighborhood. With 17 beers on tap, gastropub fare, a jukebox and occasional acoustic musical talent, it's sure to be a draw for foodies and Always Sunny fans alike.

The opening of Mac's gives fans of the hit show a great reason to explore the city where The Gang — Charlie, Sweet Dee, Dennis, Mac and Frank — have done everything from cracking the Liberty Bell to running the Philadelphia Museum of Art steps Rocky Balboa-style. In a two-day, two-night itinerary, Always Sunny fans can see for themselves where the ego-driven characters create scenes all over Philadelphia — that is, when they aren't arguing or scheming in Paddy's Pub.

The full tour — including a stop at Mac's Tavern — is now available at visitphilly.com/sunny.
