One Night Only: RJ Grunt's, The Fern Bar!

Here's a (hopefully) cool alternative to all those Chicago Craft Beer Week events: On Monday, May 20th, from 9pm-2am, I'll be serving a fern bar cocktail menu at an actual fern bar!

With the opening of Three Dots and a Dash a little over a month away, I realize I've got a little rust to shake off before I start bartending full time again. My first full night behind a bar since last February will be much like my first full night behind a bar ever: filled with Tequila Sunrises, Harvey Wallbangers, and Sloe Comfortable Screws. You can even shout 'Woo Woo!' at me, and I'll make you a shot.

See you next week at RJ Grunt's, untouched since 1971: 2056 North Lincoln Park West.
