A Very Beer-y Brunch

Hometown heroes, Spiteful Brewing, are stopping by for brunch this Saturday. And they’re too polite to arrive empty handed. We’re tapping their Absinthe Barrel-Aged Klutzy Buffoon Saison with Cherries. It’s the perfect brunch companion at 5.8%! Plus, the cherry aspect put this brew firmly in the fruit juice category of a balanced breakfast.

You’re an educated drinker, so your first question is: Yes, but in which absinthe barrel did they age this delightful concoction? Spiteful Brewing is interested in only the finest, so they sourced barrels from Letherbee Distillers, a supremely cool Chicago spirits company that’s always had a home behind our bar and in many of our cocktails.

We’re mixing up a special Letherbee cocktail, featuring two of their spirits in honor of this momentous partnership: Letherbee Gin, Cherry Heering, Carpano Bianco Vermouth, Angostura Bitters, Letherbee Aged Absinthe.

With a brunch party like this, there’s no such thing as one and done. So, we’re whipping up an extra special brunch special to prolong your drinking experience: Chicken Bouillabaisse, with PEI Mussels, Littleneck Clams, Grilled Baguette, Housemade Rouille.

We start beer brunching at noon on Saturday, December 6th!

Spreading Holiday Cheer

Do you like smiling? Is smiling your favorite? We’ve got a great reason for you to smile during the holiday season: giving help to those who need it.

We’re collecting unopened, non-perishable food items and new, unopened and unwrapped toys for children 14 and under, in collaboration with the Chicago Police Department’s 14th District.

You can drop off donated items right here at Scofflaw. In fact, we lovingly — and expertly — wrapped a shiny donation box to make things a bit more festive. We’ll only be collecting items until December 19th, so don’t wait to donate!

New Year's Eve at Scofflaw

We’re close to the finish line and it’s almost 2015 — a year we’ve been waiting for ever since Back to the Future II: we were promised hoverboards!

As always, we’re here to help you ring in the New Year with a classy, sparkly, and cocktail-fueled party! Your ticket purchase secures your spot and provides all of your party needs:

  • Hors d'oeuvres!
  • Open bar!*
  • DJ for special end-of-year dance moves!
  • Champagne toast at midnight!

Chicago has learned the hard way that it’s no fun to spend the night hailing cabs that never come in order to chase the party. Don't spend the last hours of 2014 outside in the cold. Instead, we invite you to cozy up with us and our two roaring fireplaces for the whole night. Space is limited, so score your tickets now!

Brunch vs. Sobriety

It’s a happy day when we get to marry two of our happiest pastimes: drinking gin and drinking beer. And it’s hive fives all around because this Saturday we’re hosting our buds from Off Color Brewing as they debut Eille, a limited brew inspired by the Prohibition-era, gin based Bees Knees cocktail.

We’ll be pouring the honey saison — made with gin spices and lemon — and the OG cocktail that inspired it. Stay tuned for a brunch special from Chef Mickey, to be served alongside our real honey of a brunch menu.

Halloween at Scofflaw + Slippery Slope!

We’re officially giving up the ghost of Bonny’s at Scofflaw, as our annual Bonny’s Revival Halloween Party moves to Slippery Slope, where those late-night dance parties live on in all their red lit glory. It’s Friday as usual, with Slippery Slope’s regular hours and menu with Friday resident DJs (and long-time Bonny’s party throwers), Superfriends!

But Scofflaw’s got a new party: It’s a Toga Party (think Animal House), and we invite you to consider this an opportunity to show the world your finest bedsheets. Or, wear your Belushi-style “College” sweatshirt, Sexy Little Ceasar, or whatever other brilliance you have up your sleeve. Costumes encouraged because they’re fun and you’re fun but not required.

What is required? Well you should be prepared to drink Jungle Juice and keg beer (settle down, it’s just draft beer) out of those classic Red Solo Cups and chant ‘Toga, Toga, Toga!’ every hour on the hour.

Which paves the way for a massive dance party, via DJ Carlos Mercado. He’ll play the dopest 70’s dance music around, spiced with killer soundtrack anthems all night!

*please note that we’re opening a little later on this evening, and that our regular food and cocktail menus will not be served.
