Boiler Room Turns 5 Today With Dunk Tank, "Betty" Raffle, Tattoos

By Selena Fragassi in Food on Jul 12, 2015 4:00PM

Boiler Room sure knows how to throw a party. The popular Logan Square restaurant/bar (known for its PB&J—PBR, Jameson and pizza—special) celebrates its 5th anniversary with a ton of party favors and activities.

The fun kick off at noon today with a PBR Dunk Tank where you can sink a friend for a free beer, a "Beat the Brewer" ping pong match hosted by the owner of Half Acre, vaporized hops from Lagunitas and Jameson tattoos for the devoted provided by Logan Square Tattoo.

There will also be $5 drafts and music spun by Chicago's own DJ Zebo. Stick around 'til 9 p.m. and you can also play Boiler Room's popular PBR Bingo game.

The highlight though is the chance to win the 52-year-old "Betty" Ford F-250 Pick-Up Truck often seen parked out front of the venue. Raffle tickets are $15 and the drawing will be held at 6 p.m. There is limited availability, so get there early if you want to drive her home (note you must have proof of insurance and a valid driver's license to do so).

Happy Birthday, Boiler Room!

Boiler Room is located at 2210 N. California Ave. The party starts at 12 p.m.
