The mighty Philadelphia Eagles, triumphant winners of Super Bowl LII, will do a victory lap through the streets of Philly starting at 11 a.m., practically shutting down the city with expected crowds of at least a couple million folks.
In the hopes of helping fans stay, er, hydrated, a trio of local devs built a map that locates the nearest bar along the five-mile parade route.
The mobile-friendly map, which also shows available public transit stops and the full parade route, was built in three nights as a side project by Kelly Innes, Dan Ford (both Azavea developers) and Chris Pollard, from the Delaware Valley Regional Planning Commission.
“I’m honestly not a die-hard NFL follower,” Ford confessed. “And I normally like to work on projects that have a greater civic or environmental impact, but sometimes you just have to build a tool to help people find beer.”
(On that note: Bud Light is keeping its promise of (at least one) free beer along the parade route. Here’s more info on that.)
