Tax Day Deals a special "Theatre Thursday" Event.

Help the economy by spending while you save with the following  tax day specials:

SUB 51…1/2 price bottles of CHAMPAGNE AND WINE on tax day.

51 W. Hubbard
The unique, intimate and exclusive SUB 51 in River North is the place to see and be seen. The “SUB” is located on the lower level of River North hotspot HUB 51, owned by the Melman brothers who know the Chicago restaurant scene because they are the sons of Lettuce Entertain You Enterprises’ Rich Melman–nuff about family.  HERE’S THE DEAL…The space at SUB 51 is small and the demand is large so it’s not easy to score a  table–and don’t even think about going unless you have reservations.
Two ways to get in:
1.  Go to their website at, fill out a table request and wait to hear from their VIP hostess…and wait, and wait.
2.  OR you can find a VIP friend and beg him/her to get you in.
If you strike out on both counts, you can always try another night-or better yet just head to any of the spots listed below.
