The Grafton Pub & Grill in Lincoln Square is known for its delicious Guinness, curry fries and killer burgers. But starting tonight, the Irish pub hopes to woo customers with a sweet treat: cupcakes.
Kelly Ortigara and Jenny Kawecki, both bartenders and servers at the Grafton, are cupcake pros. From pumpkin and cream cheese to chocolate, these gals can bake. The duo pitched the idea of a cupcake night to general manager Ben Munro, who quickly got on board.
Starting at 6 p.m. Monday, customers can purchase a beer and a cupcake for $5. If people are pleased, the bar hopes to make Cupcake Mondays a weekly event. After your dessert, stick around for a free show. The Old Town School of Folk Music's Jug Band Jam with Jonas Friddle starts at 9 p.m.
