Hey, Seinfeld fans! Looking for a way to celebrate the greatest sitcom of '90s in a way that doesn't line the pockets of Steve Bannon? Well, cue the iconic beatbox/synth-bass soundtrack and get excited, 'cause folks at Scofflaw have you covered.

Logan Square's favorite gin joint is celebrating Jerry and crew with a nostalgia-satisfying Seinfeld-themed night, on June 4. (Sorry Star Wars boozers, your day has passed.)

Here's a sampling of what you'll find on the menu, which is decidedly not about nothing: black-and-white cookies ("two races of flavor living side by side in harmony," as Jerry praised) and two of Elaine's preferred dishes, the big salad and muffin tops—the only half worth a damn, according to Ms. Benes. Perhaps there will be some very thirsty-making pretzels and criminally enviable marble ryes?

No RSVP required (not that there's anything wrong with that). But make sure to arrive in time for the specials (11 a.m. to 2 a.m.).
