Pig Roast, White Sox, and Reggie's

South Loop punk rock bastion and bar food standard-bearer Reggie's Rock Club is throwing a Sunday shindig for all White Sox and pork lovers. This coming Sunday, August 15th, Reggie's will be throwing an all-you-can-eat pig roast for only $10. If you love the White Sox- no matter what happens the next two evenings against the Minnesota Twins- and would like to see them play the Detroit Tigers the same afternoon, Reggie's is offering a deal for just $20 where you can chow down on some pig AND get a ticket to the game. Hell, the Reggie's Party Bus will even provide transportation to-and-fro the ballpark. The Party Bus leaves Reggie's at 12:30pm. Pig Roast to follow completion of game. Call the good folks there for more details at (312) 949-0120.
