According to creator and star Rob McElhenney, the perk of filming a series set in a bar is that you score free drinks at actual bars.
Everytime the Sunny cast is out on the town, they get hooked up at bars by both patrons and bartenders who are fans of the show.
The bar hook-up is the best in Philadelphia, where locals take pride in the Philly-centric series.
McElhenney says its nice not having to pay for drinks and even nicer actually getting to drink.
Despite filming on a bar set, he admits the cast is often too exhausted to really chug while filming, unless theyre doing a drunk scene.
Then, they sip on a little something for their craft, of course.
The new season of Sunny premieres September 17 on FX.
