Tuesday: Bowl Bits Comedy Night

Join us TONIGHT for “bowl bits” crowd-driven comedy, kicking off at 7:30 p.m.

Here’s how it works: 

  1. You supply the topics by tossing your idea into our topic bowl
  2. Our stellar cast of comics randomly draws them out
  3. Hilariousness ensues

Comedy nights are popular around here, so come early, thirsty, and ready to laugh. 

Thursday: Laughs at Lakeview

Lots of laughs, a group of Chicago’s top and up-and-coming comedians, and refreshing brews? What better way is there to spend your Thursday night? Join us for Laughs at Lakeview for a hilarious night of standup comedy that you and your friends will love.

The show kicks off at 7 p.m. and seats are first come first serve, so we recommend getting here a bit early to get a good spot. As always, tickets are $5 and the show is 21+.

Friday: Half Acre Tap Takeover

Half Acre = all delicious. So we’re delighted to announce that Half Acre Beer Company is taking over taps at the Lakeview Taproom this Friday.

They’ll be rolling on through with 3 new additions to our tap lineup, including:

  • 2019 Big Hugs – an imperial coffee stout
  • 2019 BBA Big Hugs – a bourbon barrel-aged imperial coffee stout
  • Daisy Cutter – a pale ale

Yum! Plus, they’ll be hosting a variety of raffles for Half Acre swag and prizes all night long, starting at 6 pm. So come thirsty and ready for fun.

Saturday: Live Music by Opal City Poker Chips

Between the music and our big ol’ lineup of hyper-local Chicago beers on tap, we’re rocking something for everyone this Saturday afternoon.
