Most states have made drinking alcohol at home illegal due to the proliferation of home facial-tattoo machines. Enjoy alcohol in public with today's deal: for $10, you get $20 worth of food and drinks at Blue Ox Tavern, Blue Ox Central, or Blue Ox East, Minnesota Vikings–themed bars dedicated to the westward expansion of Midwestern hospitality. Choose from the following Blue Ox locations:
- Blue Ox Tavern: 5825 West Sahara Avenue

Wager dessert money on video poker or catch a Vikings game while perusing Blue Ox's menu. Heavy on finger-ready fare and appetizers, Blue Ox offers fried, battered, and basket-dwelling basics. Try an order of extra-long fries ($3.75) or beer-battered onion rings ($5.75) as a starter, before delving into dinner with six fried jumbo shrimp ($14.25), a grilled chicken-breast sandwich ($6.75), or the Minnesota Twin Burger ($7.50), which stacks two 1/3-pound Angus patties atop each other in meaty might. Pabulum-seeking Paul Bunyans can swing appetite axes into a juicy 6-ounce steak ($11.75) or enjoy their beef roasted and sliced with the Minnesota Timberwolves French Dip ($7.50). Breakfast and lunch are also served, along with an extensive selection of beer and wine.
Open 24 hours a day, all Blue Ox locations provide nourishment for night owls, early birds, and afternoon albatrosses alike. In between courses, kill time with video-gambling gaming, including poker, keno, blackjack, and slot machines. Misplaced Midwesterners will appreciate familiar football programming, a cheerful staff, and the comfort of knowing that they've yet again escaped the cold steel claws of an Iron Range winter.
