BEAN SCENE

$5 Menu at Park Grill

Ice skating under the Bean at Millennium Park might be one way to spend a Thursday evening. But the real action is rink-side with Park Grill's $5 menu, which includes warm pots of mussels, gooey Gruyère grilled cheese, mini Angus burgers and a strong tropical rum punch—just avoid any double axels afterward.

Thursdays through March, Park Grill, 11 N Michigan Ave (in Millennium Park), 312-521-7275
