Local Bottled Water Question

ChiKen | Oct 17, 2010 05:32 PM

Thanks to the Hounds here on the Philadelphia Board, I have a list of restaurants to try (or avoid) over the next few days while in the area, on business. I'm looking forward to trying the food here...including the cheesesteak. A couple places in Chicago, operated by former Philadelphians, claim their cheesesteak is just the same as in Philadelphia...we'll just have to see about that!

Along with my food exploring, I'm trying to buy bottled water for my daughter's collection. The bottles need to be plastic (for safety) and sized around 16.9 fluid ounces, or so. She has just over 250 different water bottles in her collection and, with most of the national labels already accounted for, I'm trying to find regional and/or private labeled bottles.

Since stopping at every eatery I pass and asking if they sell their own "brand" of bottled water is an impossibility, I'm hoping you can help. If you can think of a restaurant that sells it's own privately labeled water, and is in the same general area as the Four Seasons Hotel at One Logan Square (I won't have a car), I'd appreciate knowing about it. Google already led me to the Water Works Restaurant web site. Great selection of water, but the prices! I'd rather find a six-pack or a case at a grocery, drug or liquor store and keep one bottle for my daughter and give away the rest to whoever is leaving the store and wants it for free.

As you can guess from the paragraph above, the water doesn't have to have a restaurant's name on it. Regional waters sold in retail stores and other non-restaurant related waters are also fair game.
