We've hunted down five joints where you can Bear down today without breaking the bank.

"Will the Bears swat down the Vikings tonight?" 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 today in and around . Here's a list of some gameday specials you can take advantage of at tonight's 7:30 p.m. kick-off.

Belly up to the bar at during Sunday's Vikings-Bears face-off and you'll enjoy free appetizers. The various snacks are served before the game, during half-time and even after the game. What's not to love?

Cheap Drafts at

Gameday at Teehan's on Oak Park Avenue comes with domestic drafts — Budweiser and Miller products — for just $1 each. If you need a little hair of the dog, try a bloody Mary for $5. Although Teehan's doesn't serve food, it does allow bar patrons to order from anywhere they want. Teaming up with a couple others who are watching the game could be a good way not only to save a few bucks, but make a couple of new friends, too.
