'Always Sunny' bar moves a step closer


Sunday night (4/4) was last call at Skinner's, 226 Market St. in Old City, and that means that Mac's Tavern -- backed by a group of St. Joe's Prep grads including It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia creator Rob McElhenney -- is another step closer.

Tuesday (4/6) is the planned sale date of the liquor license, and renovation is expected to start right away.

Mac's should be open in late April or early May.

The Always Sunny cast and crew -- that is, including McElhenney and his pregnant wife/co-star, Kaitlin Olson -- are due in Philly in June for an eight- or nine-day shoot, as producer Tom Lofaro told me.

It's not clear if Mac's will figure into filming. On the Fx series, the characters run a bar called Paddy's Pub.
