Half-price wine in Chicago Restaurants?
I'm interested in compiling a list of restaurants that offer half price wine on certain days of the week in the city. So far I have Bistrot Margot and La Sardine that both do this on Mondays. Anyone know of any others?
There are many, many such promotions - some involving a half-price night, others a BYO night, still others with a special price for bottles of wine. One of the most comprehensive listings of such events is on Metromix, the entertainment website of the Chicago Tribune. Go to its dining web page at http://chicago.metromix.com/restaurants and on the right you'll see a calendar. Click on "deals" (rather than "events") and then click on whatever day/date you're interested in.
I know Sweets and Savories has BYO night (no corkage fee) on Mondays, and also has $10 off their tasting menu on Mondays. If they do a half-price night, I don't know what night it is.
Every Tuesday through March 30, Pete Miller's and Davis Street Fishmarket have a "20 for $20" deal, with 20 different wines available at that price. I assume this is at all three PM locations (Evanston, Wheeling, Schaumburg) and both DSF locations (Evanston, Schaumburg).
I'm not sure about a half price night, but Sweets & Savories does have a pretty solid list of wines available for $29.

I made my first visit to Broadway Cellars tonight. There won't be a second visit. While the entree of pork chop with mashed sweet potato was flavorful - a bit overcooked - the high level of noise and the nearly incompetent waitstaff created an offensive environment. I understand that the half-price wine night is Tuesday, but even that would not lure me back to this hole.
