Midday Dining at Animale

While one restaurant rolls out brunch, another adds lunch. Bucktown’s beloved Animale has added weekday daytime service to its repertoire, featuring an array of panini, pastas, burgers and other afternoon grub, all with an inventive Italian accent. It’s the same kind of fare popular at dinner, with an emphasis on off-cuts of meat and dishes like cacio e pepe and tartufo burgers. Additionally, Animale has added a bevy of daily specials and promos as well, including BYOB Mondays, all-you-can-eat pasta on Tuesdays, burger bargains on Wednesdays and a build-your-own Bloody Mary bar on weekends. The restaurant’s new hours are noon until 10:00 p.m. daily.

Mucho Chingon at Local Option

Anytime Local Option throws a special beer event, it’s worth noting. Their first of the new year is dubbed “Mucho Chingon,” and it takes place February 3 at noon. That’s when the revered Lincoln Park beer bar will be locked and loaded with rare beers from a variety of breweries. Beer junkies should swing by to check out options like Founders Lizard of Koz, Goose Island Bourbon County Barley Wine 2016, Against The Grain Bo & Luke, Pikeworks Black Tuna, Local Option Bierwerker Dampf Loc, and lots more.
