When it's the middle of the week, it's time to un-wine with a glass of vino. Restaurants all over Chicago offer wine specials and happy hours on Wednesdays, including half-price bottles and discounted glasses, and they're often accompanied by specials on bites as well. We've got a quick round-up so you can find a wine Wednesday special that helps you get over the hump.
Most of these restaurants also offer other drink specials on Wednesday, too, so you can bring that friend that doesn't love wine as much as you do (yet you still love them).
Please note, while we do our best to ensure the accuracy of this list, it's best to call ahead to confirm. Food and drink specials change frequently. Find one that's incorrect? Let us know.
