Fried Chicken Fried Rice

Honey Butter Fried Chicken has truly outdone itself with their latest promotion. For a few consecutive weeks, the Avondale fried chicken haunt is slinging fried chicken fried rice on Tuesdays, the day the restaurant is usually closed. Specialized pints of fried chicken fried rice are served with one housemade egg roll and one handmade fortune cookie. Since the restaurant is not open for regular dinner service, orders can be picked up from the back door that connects to the bar. Available dates for fried chicken fried rice are April 7, April 14, and April 21. Hours are 5:00 p.m. until 9:00 p.m., or until they run out of food, so get there early. 

"Holding the Reverend Ransom" at Billy Sunday

Ransom Spirits step into the spotlight at Billy Sunday for a special tasting event on April 7. From 5:30 p.m. until 7:00 p.m., the Logan Square bar partners with Cream Wine Company to host the Oregon spirits line, featuring a lineup of cocktails from the Ransom line using Whippersnapper Whiskey, Old Tom Gin, Ransom Vermouth, and Henry DuYore's Bourbon. Ransom Pinot Gris and Pinot Noir will also be on hand. The cost to attend is $35 per person and reservations can be made by calling the bar or emailing Jon Byron at jon@billy-sunday.com.
