Half-Price Pizza and Pitchers
PIZZA PIZZA

Half-Price Pizza and Pitchers

The flowers. The date. The Facebook status change. Last Monday was... complicated. So let’s keep this Monday simple: pizza and beer. You can get half-off pizzas covered in ham and jalapeños and pitchers of Shiner at Knox Street Pub. Simplicity is best served in pitcher form.

Wednesday
Drinking Texas Beers for $2.50
LONE STAR STATE

Drinking Texas Beers for $2.50

Texas has produced some amazing things: Oil. Tex-Mex. Farrah Fawcett. And, of course, beer. At the Libertine Bar, you can support your own because every Texas-based beer—from Saint Arnold to Rahr—is just $2.50. The sacrifices you make for your state.
