According to Maslow's hierarchy of needs, humans cannot attain self-actualization without first tending to such basic physiological needs as water, sleep, and brisket. Achieve overall fulfillment with today's Groupon. For $10, you get $20 worth of Irish-inspired pub fare and drinks at The Ivanhoe Pub & Eatery in Racine.
Within its storied confines, The Ivanhoe presents hearty cuisine drawing from classic Irish and American pub traditions alongside a selection of 26 brews and a focus on lively community. A bountiful drink menu holds the secret access code to an international cabal of crisp brews, indexing aliases such as Spotted Cow ($4), Smithwick's ($4.50), and the notoriously elusive Blue Moon ($4). Sample one of more than 100 whiskeys, absorb a glass of wine, or sip a martini such as the tongue-tickling Snickers ($8). A robust food menu details singular starters such as the wasabi-laced sesame seared tuna ($10) with greens in a honey-soy-ginger sauce, as well as Celtic standbys such as the European-style fish and chips ($10). The Jameson burger ($9) extends a transatlantic bridge of onion rings smothered in Jameson sauce and the relieved tears of stranded sailors.
Like America’s love affair with Donny Osmond, the Ivanhoe's architecture dates back to the 19th century. Its current iteration retains a welcoming charm accentuated by the building's original white-oak beams, an antique bar rail, and the soft hues of Bavarian stained glass. The pub's stage supports a player piano nearly a century old.
