Weekday Planner: Pretzel Week at Public House, Chez Moi Partners With Read It & Eat, and Draft Viewing Party at Sweetwater

Pretzel Week at Public House

The last week in April is not just any week. It’s Pretzel Week. Public House is giving the doughy delicacy its due diligence with a week-long spree of pretzel and beer specials as part of an incentive called Twist + Stout. Cute. From April 25 through April 30, the River North bar and eatery is featuring specialty housemade pretzels paired with stout beers for $15. Options include the traditional housemade pretzel with cheddar-beer fondue paired with Buffalo Sweat Oatmeal Cream Stout; the pepperoni pizza pretzel matches nicely with the Casper White Stout; the jalapeño cheddar pretzel pairs with the Kentucky Bourbon Barrel Stout; and for dessert, there’s a cinnamon sugar pretzel with Young’s Double Chocolate Stout.
