Head to Your Neighborhood Pub for Burgers or Wings

Hibernian's got killer food deals on not just one, but two days a week. Beat the Monday blues with a $5 Build-Your-Own burger or head over on Thursday to nab 50 cent wings (full disclosure: there's a 10 wing minimum but your check still rings in right on budget!). And if you've got leftover cash, no one pours an authentic Guinness quite like Hibernian. Grab a beer and head up to the rooftop for prime views of all the Glenwood action.
