Laughs at Lakeview

The Laughs at Lakeview comedy show is back this Thursday night.

There’s nothing quite like an evening full of hilarious fun with this group of fabulous Chicago comics. And who couldn’t couldn’t use a relaxing night to kick back for laughs with a cold, local beer in hand?

This free show always sells out quickly, so be sure to book a table now for this week—or next, if you want to plan ahead.

Old Irving Brewing Co. Prize Wheel & Tap Takeover

This Friday, we’re hosting a tap takeover with a Chicago brewery that we’re thrilled to add to our lineup: Old Irving Brewing Co.

These awesome neighbors are stopping by with their prize wheel this Friday night from 5 – 9 pm, with a big ol’ pile of prizes. And we’re adding 5 of their delicious brews to our menu in honor of the occasion:

  • Della: a Kölsch-style ale brewed with a high-quality Pilsner and Vienna malt and hopped with Zuper Saazer, Hallertau Mittelfrüh, and Hallertau Blanc
  • Beezer: a Citra & Mosaic double dry-hopped IPA
  • Scentinel OG: a Citra, Mosaic & Centennial hopped IPA
  • Sidehug: a Mosaic hopped Milkshake Double IPA with mango, blueberry, vanilla, and milk sugar
  • Cosmic Kerfuffle: a Galaxy & Citra double dry-hopped Triple IPA

Every time you purchase an Old Irving Brewing Co. flight or pour, you get a chance to spin the wheel and try for a surprise from the prize pile…surprises like:

  • Koozies
  • Beer glasses
  • Tin tackers
  • Paddle bottle openers
  • Stickers
  • A free pint
  • …and more!

Remember, we still have happy hour on Fridays until 7 p.m., so be sure to reserve your table EARLY and warm-up your prize wheel muscles with 20% off all in-house pours.

Variety Open Mic Night Monday

Who said Mondays can’t be fun? We’re calling all Chi-Town Creatives for a variety open mic night this Monday at 7 pm, with sign-ups starting at 6 pm.

Breakout your best poetry, spoken word, and acoustic music to showcase at the Lakeview Taproom. This fun event will be hosted by Sylvia Mendez and feature Chris Hoffman, Lead Singer of Wolf Rd, and Morgan Gold.

If you’re a local musician or artist—or just in the mood to give open mic a try—come on out and show us your talent this Monday night.

As always, the Taproom will be limited to seated room only during this event, so be sure to book a table early.

Now Open Tuesday

Starting next week, the Lakeview Taproom will be open every Tuesday night as well!

That’s 7 solid days each week when you can enjoy the 14 local beers we have on tap, along with local spirits, seltzers, wine, pizzas, and ordered-in eats from our restaurateur neighbors. Here’s to a full week of kicking back at your favorite neighborhood gathering place.

Be sure to reserve a table. We can’t wait to see you here!
