With Lollapalooza happening this weekend, you might think that more restaurants would take advantage of the influx of people into Chicago. About 90,000 tickets were sold for each day and that's a lot of mouths to feed. But, from what we can tell, only a smattering of restaurants and bars are working the "show your wristband" angle.
That said, check out the following places where you can flash your Lolla wristband for discounts on food, drinks and more. And if you're a restaurant or bar that has an offer, but isn't listed below, shoot us a note and we'll add you (assuming we aren't doing a face dive into Chow Town ourselves).
The Deal: Get a free watermelon jalapeño cocktail made with Finlandia grapefruit vodka with the purchase of any large plate. (Hit the Elate as part of the Chicago Local stand for a non-alcoholic popsicle version of this; not free.)
2) Bangers & Lace
The Deal: Get $1 hot dogs all weekend
3) Roka Akor
The Deal: Take 15 percent off your total bill (drinks and food) in the dining room or the sake and shochu lounge. Good for wristband wearer plus up to three guests.
The Deal: Get half-off appetizers all weekend
5) Patty Burger
The Deal: Get $3 Lolla-themed burgers, like the M-and-M double patty burger or the My Morning Jack and Cheese burger.
6) Ra Sushi
The Deal: Take half-off the Ra'ckin' Roll (normally $13)
