Eating is necessary for human survival, along with breathing, sleeping, and remaining still while a curious velociraptor rummages through your closet. Practice survival tactics with today's Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of pub fare at Stubby's Pub & Grub.
Stubby's Pub & Grub's newly appointed gastronomic guru infuses a menu of classic pub grub with a contemporary twist. Lasso runaway appetites with a starter of House Charcuterie, a trio of bison terrine, pork tenderloin roulade, and house-made italian sausage sidled up next to pickled vegetables and grilled rustic bread ($10.95). Keep hands from absentmindedly bending silverware into Silver Surfer action figures by occupying them with catfish tacos with three corn tortillas with blackened catfish, pico de gallo, shredded lettuce, tomatoes and a cumin chive crema ($11.95). A braised Uphoff Farms Triple Karmeliet pork shank with a Triple Karmeliet demi-glace and tempura asparagus ($17.95) turn the homey ideals of traditional barbecue on their head. Postmeal cool-downs begin with chocolate lava cake erupting with white-chocolate sauce ($5.95), and a well-stocked bar teaming with 53 draft beers helps parched patrons wash down savory flavors. Early birds or bats up past their bedtime can stop by for brunch offerings such as buttermilk biscuits bathed in chorizo gravy ($5.50).
Stubby's Gastrogrub & Beer Bar
Even with the ambitious goal of trying a new variety every night, it would take months to sample every single beer at Stubby’s Gastrogrub & Beer Bar. Not only are there 53 different drafts and an array of cellar reserve bottles, but the selection is constantly updated with new craft brews from Wisconsin and around the world. Beer-savvy bartenders make their own recommendations behind the circular center bar as servers deliver trays of imaginative gastropub dishes—crab-stuffed jalapeños, freshwater bluegill sliders, and the hefty burger lauded by reporters from A.V. Club Milwaukee as “drool-inducing.” When not toppling giant Jenga blocks or throwing darts, guests can gaze up at the flat-screen televisions and cheer when a hardened banker learns to love in a Lifetime movie. The massive wooden deck gives al fresco enthusiasts space to linger over bites of cod tacos and barbecue pork nachos.
