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 $8, you get $16 worth of drinks at Jade Monkey Cocktail Lounge, a neighborhood nightspot on the East Side.
Jade Monkey's menu has a martini, iced tea, mojito, classic or specialty cocktail, hard-hitting spirit, or craft, imported, or domestic beer to appease any esophagus. Chase the bubbly Rosie Palmer, a champagne cocktail with PAMA pomegranate liqueur and champagne ($4), with a creamy cherry cheesecake specialty shot ($3) to warm sudsy stomachs. For hops and froth enthusiasts, Jade Monkey's eight on-tap brews (including Ale Asylum Hopalicious, Bell's Seasonal, and New Glarus Spotted Cow) complement a hearty list of craft brews, domestics, and imports. Sate a nagging sweet tooth with Jade Monkey's ice-cream drinks such as the grasshopper, a creamy whirl of crème de menthe, crème de cacao, and ice cream ($7). Classic cocktails such as the whiskey side car ($7) are available along with signature creations such as the Dog Sled, a sweet and tart pour featuring Captain Morgan, Southern Comfort, orange juice, and pineapple juice ($4).
Sip and glug while playing games (Jade Monkey has darts, pool, shuffleboard, and board games) or pop some change into the jukebox and bust a move until it breaks on the dance floor. If you'd rather your music come from something that lives, breathes, and giggles when tickled, Jade Monkey has DJs every Sunday night. Check the calendar of events to find the best time to sashay past Jade Monkey's koi tanks, grab a seat at the painted red bar, and pick a bottle from the mirror-backed wall of booze.
