Comments Off on OAK & IRON VI: A Festival of Barrel-Aged Beers
THURSDAY, FEB 16th, Lincoln Square. Celebrate a night of magic, myth, and epic heroism. And beer. Lots of barrel-aged beer. The Sixth annual Oak & Iron begins at 5 pm with an array of fantasy-inspired prog and assorted metals, while regaling you with tales from forgotten sword-wielding cinema and decor of leftover weaponry from grand wars and adventures. Did we mention there will be beer? Fantasy costumes encouraged.
*This event is not recommended for children, as our choice of movies may not be appropriate for young rogues that have not yet pillaged a village or slain a dragon.

Comments Off on GROUNDHOG DAY
Thurs, Feb 2nd. It’s time to predict our future. We predict we’ll be watching Bill Murray fall in love with Andie MacDowell on repeat all day and eating Wild Boar Sloppy Joe’s (ground hog…get it?).

Comments Off on ON THE NEWS + GRILLED CHEESE CHAMPIONS
They say proof is in the pudding. Or in this case, the cheese. Thanks Time Out Chicago and everyone who voted for us at the Grilled Cheese Meltdown. The official best grilled cheese in Chicago is now the Nutball Grilled Cheese at Jerry’s, and is on our menu as we speak. We recommend an extra side of mango chipotle chutney for dipping purposes. Cue “We Are the Champions”.
Bonus: here is Trey on WGN News with Lourdes Duarte making grilled cheese sandwiches, and here is Mark on ABC 7 News making grilled cheese sandwiches.

Comments Off on WHISKEY CLASSES in JANUARY
Love whiskey but want to learn more? Know a whiskey lover and still need a stocking stuffer? This class is for you.
Our discussion will be lead by two Certified Kentucky Colonels based here in Chicago, Eric Q Rosentreter of Redemption Whiskey and Trey Elder of Jerry’s. They will be talking about all types of whiskey with an emphasis on American made hooch, as well as tasting different distillates representative of different types of whiskey categories. The educational portion will run about 45 minutes, with plenty of time for questions and discussion afterward (and during). $25 includes the class, tastes of over 10 whiskeys, and some small snacks to keep the pallet clean. Dinner or other drinks and menu item swill be available for purchase off menu. Links below:

Comments Off on January Menu Updates
It’s a steady slog to sandwich perfection (and sometimes one step forward and two steps back). New specials running this month are wild boar burger, rosemary-breaded pork chop, al pastor, alligator sausage, and fried tilapia with house tartar sauce.
