Tuesdays through Saturdays are a great opportunity for students to score free breadsticks, chips and salsa and other appetizers from 4-6 p.m. at UpFront & Company on East Main Street.

Fat Boyz on Ontario Ave. hosts their “Taco Tuesday,” where two tacos — put together at their build-your-own-taco bar — are only $1. They also have a special drink each day of the week, either a beer or mixed drink, for $1.75.

The Holiday Inn Lounge is also a viable option, as they host happy hour from 5-7 p.m. Monday through Thursday with 50 cents off of all drinks. On Tuesdays, they also have trivia and $3 Margaritas and Tequila Sunrises.

Stucko’s Pub & Grill cuts both domestic bottles and well drinks to $2.50 on Tuesdays, and their burgers are also a dollar off.

For the fullest stomach at the cheapest price, both Marquette movie theaters offer “Bring Your Own Bucket Night,” where with any admission ticket, they will fill up whatever bucket or bag presented with popcorn for just 53 cents.


The Holiday Inn Lounge is a big attraction for Northern students on Wednesdays, said bartender Brett Davis. On this night, they offer 25 cent chicken wings and $1.50 drafts of Bud Light and LaBatt Blue.

Also offering cheap wings on Wednesday is Stucko’s Pub & Grill, who run their “Whiskey & Wings Wednesday” promotion. Half-orders of wings are 50 cents off, full orders are a dollar off and all whiskey drinks are 75 cents off. “That means it’s only $2.25 for the Kessler, the cheapest whiskey,” Stucko’s manager Sarah Rahoi said.


For meals, appetizers and drinks, Hudson’s Classic Grill gives a 10 percent discount to all students on Thursdays. They also have a new gourmet burger menu, with each week a different burger being a dollar off.

If a big meal isn’t desired on “Thirsty Thursday,” Stucko’s knocks a dollar off all drafts, and the Doghouse Pub on Washington Street has dollar-off pints and $2 rail drinks during their 4-7 p.m. happy hour. The Doghouse happy hour runs Monday through Thursday. Football fans also should take notice, as the Doghouse is one of the only bars in town that carries the NFL network.


Although popular brew-pub The Vierling on South Front Street doesn’t offer any daily specials, owner Terry Doyle said they work hard to keep their prices cheaper than their neighboring competition. “We charge $4 for our 20 oz. pint beers, where other places nearby charge $6 for a 16 oz. pint,” Doyle said. On Friday nights, The Vierling has a $10.99 fish fry with Lake Superior whitefish, which could make for a meal alongside a cheap, freshly-brewed pint of beer.

For another fish fry, the Holiday Inn Lounge hosts all-you-can-eat cod for $9.95 and perch for $11.95. Long Island Iced Teas and Margaritas are on sale for $3, as well.

For the Sunday night outing, Applebee’s slashes their appetizer prices in half after 8 p.m. and has their large Brewtus drafts of Miller Lite, Bud Light and Killians for $2.50 and domestic drafts for $1.25. These deals run Sunday through Thursday. Also on Sunday, Stucko’s offers $4 Bloody Mary drinks and $2 off pizza.
