Kick off the St. Patrick’s Day weekend and Follow Me on Friday to Bullhead Cantina, 1406 W. Morse. The fun takes place this Friday, March 14th, from 5:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m., at Rogers Park’s newest eatery, located on the northwest corner of Morse and Glenwood in the spot formerly occupied by Morsel.
We’re celebrating St. Patrick’s Day at a cantina?
Yes, but Bullhead Cantina isn’t your typical taquería. It is a whisky and taco bar, with an out-of-this-world selection of tacos with a wide array of ingredients that include hanger steak, marinated pork, beer grilled chicken, grits and kale, carnitas, slow roasted brisket, grilled tilapia, avocado, southern fried chicken, pulled barbecue pork, marinated grilled portabello, grilled sweet potato, and roasted beets.
In honor of the St. Patrick’s Day weekend holiday and Follow Me on Friday, Bullheadwill be offering a special complimentary corned beef taco with charred tomato and pickled cabbage topped off with a horseradish cream. To make your St. Patrick’s Day holiday complete, Bullhead will also offer a free shot of Tullamore Dew Irish whiskey. A complimentary, beer, wine or soft drink will also be available for those who want something a little softer.
Bullhead Cantina is the brainchild of Saul Marchan and Paco Ruiz, who opened their Humboldt Park Bullhead Cantina to rave reviews in 2011. The Rogers Park eatery is their second location.
Bullhead Cantina distinguishes itself from other taqueria’s by focusing on a great selection of whiskey, craft beers and hand crafted tortillas for their tacos. The items they offer without a doubt complement each other very well, resulting in a terrific culinary experience for all to enjoy!
They offer specials every day of the week, but their most popular is their renowned taco, beer and whiskey shot for $6!
“Follow Me on Friday” is one of my efforts to encourage my constituents to sample some of the 49th Ward’s finest restaurants, pubs and businesses. Each week on my Facebook page, I post the name and location of a local restaurant, pub or business where I’ll be hanging out after work on Friday. The establishment offers specials for all my Facebook followers and their friends. It’s a great opportunity for you to check out one of the fine local 49th Ward businesses you may not have visited before.
