Head to the Publican for a barbecue you don't have to grill yourself—they'll be serving up a la carte menu items from 10am–2pm including oysters, tri tip, soft shell crab and French toast.
Celebrate on the 4th proper at Oyster Bah with specials like a half fried chicken for $17, baby back ribs starting at $18, combos and steamed lobsters. Head over to the Low Tide Lounge at 5pm for the kickoff of Monday Night Foosball and $4 Anchor Steam.
Maybe you partied a little too hard over the weekend and are taking the 4th to recover—if so, head over to Nico Osteria, where they'll be serving the typically weekend-only brunch menu, and you'll be able to nosh on a grilled Italian sausage or knock back rosé (since hair of the dog makes everything better).
For a 4th of July special you can feel good about indulging in, Lottie's will serve specials that will raise money for 1Fur1 Foundation's service dogs program. Specials include $4 for two Chicago-style hot dogs, $4 Fireball shots and $3.50 Samuel Adams Summertime pints. Bring your pooch, there will also be a fro-yo special for the dogs.
From July 2–4 from 10am–4pm, KICK will serve its brunch menu with Cap'n Crunch challah French toast and burgers. But the restaurant will also be serving a few specials like a Red, White and Blue Stack—red velvet, buttermilk and blueberry pancakes for $10, an All American pulled pork sandwich with cornbread and potatoes for $12 and 1776 Bourbon shots for $5.
Build-your-own Bloody Mary's and mimosas are the name of the game at Commonwealth on Saturday and Sunday. Mimosas will be $3 and bloodies $6, with the regular brunch menu offering up dishes like schniztel and Kentucky hot brown.
If you're looking for a distinctly different way to celebrate the 4th of July weekend, head to Frontier. On Saturday, July 2 starting at 1pm, Frontier will host an Americana Pig Luau with an all-you-can-eat smoked pig and sides. Tiki cocktails will also be served a la carte. Tickets are $25 and can be purchased here.
Smack Shack will be serving up its normal menu for the holiday weekend, July 1–3, but they'll also serve a special Hurricane cocktail with a red, white and blue theme. It's only $5, laden with rum and juice. Paired with a lobster roll, what could go wrong?
