Great Specials and Well-Priced Whiskey at Blokes and Birds

2010_11_1_blokes_birds.jpg If you haven't gotten a chance to check out Lakeview gastropub newcomer Blokes and Birds, two new specials may convince you to stop in. Starting last week (and extending indefinitely), Tuesdays and Wednesdays are now the best time to visit, since some great dining deals will be warming away your winter chill.

On Tuesday nights, Blokes and Birds will be offering all-you-can-eat fish and chips. The restaurant serves up fish and chips with homemade tartar sauce for $12, and you can have as many portions of the entree as you want from 5 PM to 10 AM.

On Wednesday nights, alcohol is the focus. Each week, the restaurant will be offering "a pint and a nip" - a pint of a selected beer and a 3/4 pour of whiskey. The special this week is Two Brothers Cane and Ebel and Mellow Corn straight corn whiskey. The combination is only $5 - an amazing deal. Thank goodness both of these deals aren't on the same night - we're not sure that tartar sauce and whiskey mix well. This deal starts at 5 and ends at 2 AM.

Blokes and Birds is located at 3343 N Clark St.
