Reggies | 2105 S State St


Metal-heads and chili-connoisseurs will rejoice at Reggies this Sunday for the big game. Reggies is a hard-core metal bar and restaurant with plenty of musical performances throughout the week. However, this Sunday, it will bring its idiosyncratic, metallic, and nonconformist attitude to another level with a spirited competition. Sure, there’s the big game but there’s also a Chili-Cook-Off-Competition. Opening at 11 am on February 2nd, Reggies has three viewing spaces to watch the game (including a rooftop deck). Starting at 2 pm, there is an All-You-Can-Eat buffet for $15.00/person. While Reggies is serving up food from 2 pm until the end, you can also enter their chili cook-off or half-time eating contest. May the odds be ever in your favor.

Imagine a world where you can order Texas-style barbecue in West Loop, watch the Super Bowl, and order a pitcher of cocktail or beer … Sounds epic! Well, imagine no more because this world exists! At Green Street Smoked Meats, you can watch the game this Sunday, enjoy authentic barbecue and still get your vegetables on your plate (broccoli salad, anyone?)! Better yet, watch your team (or advertisements) on the 18-foot screen, just like the movies. Last but not least, don’t forget to order a Frito-pie!
