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 comforting pub grub and libations at Hal & Mal’s, located on South Commerce Street.
For decades, Hal & Mal’s has lured locals into its cheerful pub with frothy brews and refreshing cocktails. Live music floods the hangout almost every night of the week, offering patrons a metronome by which to pace their sipping, chewing, and socializing. The eatery's menu of solid sustenance is filled to the brim with home-style belly warmers, shining a spotlight on Cajun creations like gumbo ($5.50 for a cup, $6.75 for a bowl), red beans and rice ($8.50 for a whole order, $6.50 for a half), and po’ boys sandwiches ($8.75-$9.25), served by friendly waiters, or, if you opt for the more authentic experience, gators. Swing by on a Tuesday night to test your trivia and post-Monday noshing skills.
