  • Food & Booze
You had to forego hitting the town last weekend because the bank balance couldn’t take another night out like your last. $200 withdrawn? Did that happen after the tequila shots or the Jagermeister and Redbull? Lucky for you, all that time at home meant you had a chance to ferret out all the 50 cent pieces from behind the couch. And we know just where to spend them. Tippler’s Tap | Newstead It always pays to take a trip to Tippler’s Tap for mouth-watering Chicago styled eats. If you think this joint is only for beer drinkers, then you’re sorely mistaken, as Tipplers Tap has a bar menu for beer lovers and cheapskates alike. American style hot dogs smothered in your favourite U.S. flavours (gherkins, American mustard and the like)? $10. Spicy chicken wings with blue cheese sauce? $10. Vegetarian chilli cheese fries with sour cream. You guessed it, $10. If you’re desperate, Tuesday’s are cheap taco night with beef tacos for the bargain price of $2. And did we mention they have beer? The Lychee Lounge | Fortitude Valley The Lychee Lounge is making Mondays a little more bearable with their ‘Hello Monday’ deal. Grab a share plate (or 3) for $5 or a jam jar cocktail for $10.These delicious share plates change weekly and include karaage chicken, miso roasted eggplant, seafood karook and honey soy chicken skewers from Lychee Lounge’s new Asian-inspired menu. With eats like these now available, we don’t even feel sad that burgers are off the menu. This irresistible offer is available every Monday from 3pm ‘til late, giving plenty of time for Monday afternoon pick me ups. Full belly on a near empty wallet, sorted. Words by Lucille Burkitt
