WEEKEND MENU AS OF JULY 22, 2017

Join us after noon Saturday and Sunday for Dont Fret Quality Meats and the Light Times Club! Back in 2015, Publican Quality Meats invited friend and Chicago artist, Dont Fret, in for a butcher-shop takeover and custom sausage launch. Since it’s never too late for round two, Dont Fret and creative partner Kate Brankin re-opened The Light Times Club - a conceptual watering hole based in the deep culture of Chicago corner bars. In other words, it’s a killer outdoor bar, built on-site in PQM’s backyard, stocked with the all the malort, cheap beer and Kielbasa-style sausages you’d expect from any dive worth its salt.  For more info about Dont Fret, check out @dontfretart on Instagram.
