It's Stein Time!

It's been a great summer here at Trader Todd's, but we're looking forward to fall.  In July we welcomed a new chef, Andy Ramsey, who is introducing some new items to our menu this September. Can you say wontons?  Chef Ramsey is also starting a Burger of the Month (BOTM) program.  September's Burger of the Month, the Hasselhoff, is inspired by Octoberfest.  The patty is a half pound ground beef and bratwurst blend, topped with German potato salad, beer cheese spread and sauerkraut, on a pretzel bun with seasoned fries for $13. This burger pairs perfectly with Sam Adams Octoberfest on draft all month for $6 a pint.   Join us on Saturday, September 15th from 4 pm to 6 pm for Sam Adams Pint Night.  Sam Adams will be sampling out their Octoberfest beer and any customer who purchases a pint can keep their glass stein (while supplies last). 

Take a photo of you with our BOTM - the Hasslehoff - follow @tradertodds_chicago on instagram, and tag #TraderToddsBOTM and enter to win next month's BOTM on us!


Celebrate National Karaoke Week

This week is National Karaoke Week and we are celebrating at Trader Todd's with Random Acts of Karaoke!  What does that mean?  Think Carpool Karaoke meets Random Acts of Kindness.  We're going to be spreading karaoke joy with four theme nights and the return of our mobile Karaoke Kart.  Join in on the fun by dressing up in costume and singing from each night's motif and you might just be rewarded with one of our random prizes (ranging from T-shirts to parties) .

  • Thursday - Disco Fever
  • Friday - Country Night
  • Saturday - Totally '80's 
  • Sunday - Disney/Showtunes Night

Also be on the look out for Trader Todd himself touring around Lakeview in our Karaoke Kart - before and after the Cubs games - you might even see him with his buddy Don "Ogre" Gibb.
