Shultzy's will be OPEN Saturday, but CLOSED Sunday and Monday for Labor Day Weekend

After laboring all year, we're taking a couple of days off to relax.  Not really, we'll be doing maintenance and deep cleaning at the restaurant. Sounds fun, doesn't it?  Wanna join us?  I didn't think so.

Cousin Rory's Pulled Pork is on the menu

After months of negotiations, Cousin Rory, famed BBQ chef and Shultzy's Grill Manager, has added his Pulled Pork sandwich to the menu.  Pork shoulder is rubbed with our secret BBQ spices and cooked long over low heat until it's succulent and ready to pull off the bone.  It comes on a sesame seed bun, topped with our own Carolina slaw and BBQ sauce.

Rory's a busy guy, so we don't always have his Pulled Pork sandwich available, but if you're lucky you'll get to try some.

Cousin Rory's grandpa, a former Brat Pack member, taught Rory everything he knows about BBQ 

Vienna Beef is here!

There's a new hotdog in town (and at Shultzy's) and its name is Vienna Beef®.

Vienna Beef has a long tradition as Chicago's favorite hotdog, and it came to Don Schulze's attention earlier this year when the Wall Street Journal did an article on America's top hotdogs. Don saw that most of the top hotdog places were using Vienna Beef frankfurters as the foundation of their own custom dogs.  Since we pride ourselves on top-quality ingredients at Shultzy's, Don sent us in search of Vienna Beef.

It took a while to locate a local distributor, but we finally succeeded and today Vienna Beef's on the menu at Shultzy's.  Order a Vienna Beef Frankfurter, a Cheddar Dog, or a Junkyard Dog (cheddar, chili, and onions) and you'll get to taste what we think is the best-tasting hotdog around.  We're also serving them on Vienna Beef poppyseed rolls, the roll of choice in Chicago.  We hope you'll give them a try and let us know what you think.

And for those of your Chicagoans or wannabe Chicagoans, we'll soon be adding a Chicago Dog as a special on the menu, complete with mustard, neon green relish, diced onions, sport peppers, tomato wedges, pickle spear, and a dash of celery salt.  I'm looking forward to having one the next time the Cubs are on TV at lunchtime here.

Next week, we'll be adding another Vienna Beef product to our Happy Hour menu -- Vienna Beef "Pups" -- they're the hotdog equivalent of "sliders"/mini-hamburgers and they're delicious!

Soccer/Futbol returns to Shultzy's

Olympic Soccer has been fun this past week, but we're looking forward to the imminent returns of the world's top soccer leagues.  Argentine soccer league play kicked off this week, the German Bundesliga starts its new season this Friday (11:30am Bayern Munich vs. Hamburg), and the English Premier league kicks off on TV with a tripleheader starting this Saturday morning at 7:00am (Shultzy's doesn't open until 8:00am -- sorry!). And Argentine soccer's game of the week (River Plate vs. Rosario Central) is on at 3:00pm Sunday.

Come on in, and enjoy the action!

Beer News

As Shultzy's "Keg Master", beer has been on my mind lately, so I thought I would share a couple of items with you.

Oktoberfest Beer Prices (in Germany)
The price of beer is not yet set, but the official organizers estimate that a liter of beer will cost between 7.7 and 8.0 Euros.  For those Americans in attendance, that puts the price of a frosty Oktoberfest beer at $11.86 to $12.32.  You'll be happy to hear that our liter prices at Shultzy's are considerably lower; our regular price for a liter of beer is $9.50, and if you came in at Happy Hour today, a liter of Spaten Helles Bock would have set you back only $7.00!  We'll be doing our best during Oktoberfest to create our own festive atmosphere for you to enjoy your beer here.

And according to the Oktoberfest countdown clock on our website, there are only 44 days left until the party starts at Shultzy's.

Kostritzer Schwartzbier, the Pride of East Germany
The Toronto Star wrote an article on Kostritzer Schwartzbier (Black Lager), a favorite of many Shultzy's regulars.  I wasn't aware that Kostritzer was from the former East Germany and was brought to commercial prominence when it was acquired by Bitburger who increased sales fifty-fold over the last 20 years.  Goethe supposedly lauded Kostritzer for its healthfulness, though we just like it for its taste.  Tomorrow's Thursday, so well have dark beer on special all day: $3.99 for a 1/2 liter.   Dinkel Acker Dark's currently on tap, but Kostritzer's up next, so come on in and give it a try.
