Score during Blackhawks playoff run with these food and drink specials

Written by

The Chicago Blackhawks have already begun their quest for the Cup, but there's still plenty of time to take advantage of all the great playoff specials around town. Despite dropping Thursday's first round opener to the Nashville Predators 0-1, signs still point to the Hawks winning it all in 2017. If you're not at Saturday's game, you can watch Toews and crew bounce back (we hope) at one of these Blackhawks bars. But if this is the beginning of the end, here's a roundup of food and drink specials you'll want to grab before the Blackhawks playoff run comes to an end.

The Anthem: If you're lucky enough to score tickets to a Blackhawks playoff game, the Anthem will take 20 percent off your pre– or postgame tab—just show them your ticket on the day of the game.

Bar Lupo: As long as the Hawks are playing (and you know the secret password—hint: it's "Chelsea Dagger") you can get a free Zamboni special lemon ice. You can also make it a boozy ice (topped with Aperol and Prosecco) for 99 cents.

Bub City—Rosemont: Get loud at Bub City in Rosemont with $5 holler drink specials during playoff games.

Commonwealth Tavern: Every Hawks playoff game (sound and all) will be televised at Commonwealth Tavern. And with $15 Miller/Coors buckets and $5 soft pretzels on playoff game days, it's a win-win for Chicago hockey fans.

Mac’s Wood Grilled: You can't beat this Wicker Park bar's game-day deals, which include $10 PBR pitchers, $18 Bell's Oberon pitchers and $5 Coors Light stadium cups.

Mad Social: Just down the street from the United Center, Mad Social is not only a great pit stop for fans heading to or coming from the game, it's also serving up $5 drafts when the Hawks play at home.

The Pony Inn: Whether home or away, regular season or post, the Pony Inn has food and drink specials for every game. And as an official Blackhawks bar, you can earn rewards and freebies on game nights through the Blackhawks Bar Rewards Program.

Robert’s Pizza Company: Buy a pizza at Robert’s when the Hawks play and score 50 percent off draft beers.

Rockit Bar & Grill: Watch the Hawks on a 9-foot jumbo screen, while you take advantage of these great specials. Get Wagyu beef sliders (Gruyère cheese, caramelized onions and horseradish sauce on an onion bun) for $15 or snack on green chicken chili nachos (tomatillo salsa, guacamole, pickled jalapeños and queso fundido) for $14. Wash everything down with a $25 bucket of quality brews.
