Bull and Bear Public House Giveaway

Congratulations to Kelsey Ingram on winning our sixteenth High Five Giveaway and thank you to all who entered.

Our next giveaway is for a $100 gift certificate to Bull & Bear and Public House. The gift certificate can be used at either restaurant!

About Bull & Bear

The name gives a nod to the city’s two major sports teams, plus a hint at the subtle stock market theme throughout (note the stock ticker stretching across the main bar and the menu, called “The Wells Street Journal.”) Bull & Bear’s kitchen will be slinging eats all day long, from entree salads and gruyere-topped Kobe burgers at lunch to honey-miso salmon and pork chop with apple fennel salad for dinner. Happy hour appetizers are sports bar classics amped up a notch, from pigs in a blanket with citrus slaw to truffle fries with garlic-lemon aioli.

Bull & Bear is located at 431 N. Wells St. For more information, call them at 312-527-5973 or visit

About Public House

A dozen booths — including a fireplace nook — will be tricked out a with self-serve beer taps built right into the tables. They’re just like the table taps you know and love at B&B, only will a few more bells and whistles, like chilled liquor on tap to replace bottle service and holographic keyboards that beam down onto the table and allow partiers to send messages to other booths, update their Facebook status or log on to Twitter.On the food front, B&B chef Dave Blonsky also handles the menu here; expect a mainstream American menu for lunch and dinner serving burgers, sandwiches and chops.

Public House is located at 400 N. State St. For more information, call them at 312-265-1240 or visit
