Does drinking in Greektown
until the wee hours make you hungry? Then head to the Spectrum Bar for live blues on Saturdays, no cover charge, and downright cheap munchies during the week. Spectrum serves $1 tacos on Mondays, $1 cheeseburgers on Tuesdays, 20-cent buffalo wings on Wednesdays, and Greece's famous souvlaki shish-ka-bob sticks for $1.50 on Thursdays. The kitchen closes at 3, but stay and drink until 4, or the bewitching hour of 5 on Sunday mornings.
Partying college kids love this place. So do sports fans. Spectrum boasts five TV monitors broadcasting the big game(s) from a satellite feed, and bar games including darts and Golden Tee golf. So once you tire of the Zorba soundtrack and waiters burning cheese to chants of "Opa" at Greektown's classier restaurants, cross the street to Spectrum, where you'll find AC/DC on the jukebox and, more than likely, a Bulls or Blackhawks game on TV.
