Extended Holiday Brunch, Smokin Mary Mix Offer

Week-Long Holiday Brunch at 3 Restaurants

Extended Brunch Service Includes a Smokin’ Bloody Mary Mix Offer

Frasca Pizzeria and Wine Bar (Lakeview), Dunlays on the Square (Logan Square) and Dunlays on Clark (Lincoln Park) will add daily brunch service this holiday season. From Sunday, December 26 to Sunday, January 2, the three restaurants will offer brunch everyday from 10am-3pm. A week-long celebration of “National Bloody Mary Day” (Jan 1) will offer guests the opportunity to be among the first to take home a bottle of the newly released, custom-made Smoke Daddy “Smokin’ Mary” bloody mary mix.

During the extended holiday brunches (Dec 26-Jan 2), anyone that orders a bloody mary will be offered a 32 ounce bottle of “foot stompin’ good” Smoke Daddy “Smokin’ Mary” mix for only $2 (regularly retails for $5). The brunch offerings for each restaurant are outlined below.

SMOKIN’ MARY MIX
Chicago’s best rhythm and BBQ in a cocktail mix: meet Smokin’ Mary, Smoke Daddy’s sweetheart. Only she ain’t so sweet, she’s smokin’. The perfect marriage of spices, horseradish, rich tomato flavor and our famous BBQ sauce, she’s the one you wanna spend your morning, noon and night with. You’ve never met a mouthfeel like this. Here’s how we like her…over ice with a shot or two of vodka and a squeeze of fresh lime. Garnish with salami, celery and cheese. Finish with a sidecar of beer. From our neighborhood to yours, taste the sounds and feel the flavor of the Smoke Daddy. *Smokin’ Mary first made a name for herself at Dunlays on Clark where she was voted Chicago’s Best Bloody Mary Mix.
