Sports bars offer fans all the excitement of football season without making then brave snow, sleet, or fallout from the mascot’s souvenir-cleats cannon. Savor sports from the great indoors with today’s Groupon: for $20, you get a pub dinner for two at Messner’s Wrigley Grille (up to a $41.40 total value). Dinner for two includes:
- One appetizer (up to a $12.50 value)
- Two entrees (up to a $24 value)
- Two sodas (a $4.90 value)<p>
Perched mere blocks away from historic Wrigley Field, Messner’s Wrigley Grille fuels cheering fans with a menu of classic pub fare served across two floors that boast 20 plasma HDTV screens. As the ref’s whistles streaming from Bears and Blackhawks games mark the start of each feast, tortilla chips high-dive into warm dip made from Spanish artichokes and California spinach, blended with cheese and garlic. Alternatively, duos can race for bites of the Messner’s sampler platter of wings, potato skins, corn dogs and mozzarella sticks. Upon main-course plates, tangy barbecue sauce smothers the onion-straw crowns of pulled-pork sliders, and caramelized onion and portobello hitchhike to palates aboard the half-pound beef-mushroom burger. Messner’s Palermo–style pizzas allow diners to custom-top pies with green pepper, mushroom, sausage, or the foul ball they caught last season. Messner’s exchanges the harmonious melodies of cheering fans for live bands and DJs who perform Thursday–Saturday.
