Food fights only happen in movies, television shows, and restaurants with attention-seeking baby butlers. Obtain a calm dining experience free of baby employees with today’s side deal: for $10, you get $20 worth of American bistro cuisine and drinks at Weather Mark Tavern, a nautically themed restaurant in the South Loop. Purchase up to two Groupons and combine them both for tables of five or more. The tavern’s kitchen is open weekdays for lunch and dinner from 11:30 a.m. to 12:00 a.m. and opens for brunch at 10:30 a.m. on weekends. The bar remains open seven days a week, serving up drinks as late as 3:00 a.m. on Saturday nights.
Weather Mark Tavern’s menu provides American bistro fare with Southwestern accents. The notoriously happy hybrid meal of brunch kicks off with Southwestern eggs benedict composed of cured salmon and chipotle hollandaise ($8.95) and travels onward to a lighter island of yogurt and granola with freshly cut fruit ($5.95). Lunch and dinner gets off to a refreshing fork's worth of tuna, green beans, olives, and red potatoes over mixed greens ($8.95) or a savory chef selection such as stuffed mushrooms with spinach filling in white fondue fit for french-bread dipping ($9.50). Main plates include filet mignon with port-wine reduction ($23.95) or saffron-poached tilapia with bay-shrimp risotto ($17.95). Before, during, and after your meal, toast to tropical urban summer with one of the tavern’s 40 house and special rums from the drink menu.

Weather Mark Tavern
The nautically themed Weather Mark Tavern’s affable chef, Jake, carefully crafts a rotating menu of American bistro fare accented with southwestern flavors. Hardwood, exposed brick, and smooth granite embellish the tavern, drawing eyes toward floor-to-ceiling sails that sequester tables and couches of cozy dates or intense scurvy treatments. Specialty rum drinks splash glasses with smooth fruit flavor and an array of brews on tap quenches thirsts. Special events fill the calendar in the form of holiday parties, live music, and viewings of favorite sports or management teams.
