Eat, Drink and Bear Merry: A Rundown of Today's Gameday Specials

Bear down! And get some food and drink specials, while you're at it.

"Will the Bears swat down the Panthers today?" A question of greater importance may be, "Where can I gnosh on wings and a free halftime buffet while downing beer specials?"

Your friends at Patch have done the legwork to find the best deals in and around . Here's a list of some gameday specials you can take advantage of at kick-off.

Drink Tickets at

Fork over 15 bucks at today and you'll get six drink tickets in return. You can cash in those tickets for any beverages you choose. You'll also get to dive into a half-time buffet of all types of food including pizza, meatballs, mozzarella sticks and much more.

$25 For Food and Booze at

If you choose to make your gameday hot spot, you'll be cashing in—big time. A $25 fee will allow you to start your day off with nachos and pizza. Also included is your choice of four dinners—chicken, shrimp, hot wings or ribs—and all your drinks during the four quarters in which the Bears are (hopefully) kickin' some Panther butt.

Buckets at

Although you won't find any food specials today at in , you'll find plenty of goodies in the realm of drink deals. For $10, you can score a bucket of five Miller Lite bottles. If you spend $18, you can swap those Millers for Heinekens or Coronas. Are you more of a pitcher person? Pay $9.25 for Bud, Bud Light, Miller Genuine Draft or Miler Lite. Tall Newcastle or Coors Light drafts will cost ya $3.75 a piece.

Free Refills at Rock Bottom

Along with discounts on appetizers, you can cash in on free drink refills at Rock Bottom in Orland Park this afternoon. Pay $7 for your first initial pint and then get refills on Belgian White, Kolsch, Red Ale Stout and IPAs.

A Smorgasbord at Cuzin's Tavern & Pizza

What's better than a buffet of home-cooked grub at your local tavern? Well, a FREE buffet of home-cooked food at your local tavern. That's what you'll get if you stop by , where Cuban sandwiches, Broccoli red casserole, salad, pan pizza and cookies will be served at no cost.

Sweet Spot at Odyssey offers $30 from 11am Till end of 4th includes whatever you drink and freshly cooked to ur liking burgers, brats & chicken. Also, chili, chips and bean bags to boot. Don't forget it's also attached to a driving range. So practice the swing or after a few libations challenge ur buddy to see who can hit a golf ball further with an upside down club. Enjoy!!
