Prohibition inspired crafty ways to hide liquor, such as obscuring flasks in flapper dresses and pouring tequila into the reservoir of a super soaker. Absorb potables more openly with today’s Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of bar fare and drinks at Whiskey Dick’s.
Inspired by Prohibition-era vigilante Richard Williams Jr.'s illicit liquor deliveries, Whiskey Dick’s boasts a menu of savory burgers, sandwiches, and more, as well as 16 draft beers. Goad chompers into taking on the Big Dick’s burger challenge, a beef binge that bombards mouth caverns with nine 1/3-pound patties slathered in cheese ($26.11). Those who complete consumption in 15 minutes are rewarded with a T-shirt, not having to pay for the burger, and a set of false teeth once worn by champion eater George Washington. Vacant belly hovels can also be furnished with the fried mac 'n' cheese ($8.79) and a slab of Don’t Let Your meatloaf ($10.14, available 5–11 p.m.)
Whiskey Dick's spacious dining area is constantly pulsing with quarter notes, with live music five nights a week and karaoke on Wednesdays. Sip a slew of suds at the bar or settle into one of the lounge's plush couches to get hypnotized by the glow of 14 televisions. The eatery’s video-poker machines can be enjoyed by card sharks as well as actual sharks who have learned how to breathe on land.
