Six infinity stone flavors for you to enjoy July 17th-July 21st!

For an afternoon lunch and a dinner pallet, enjoy the Aquaman inspired SEAFOOD BURGER served on our homemade sourdough brioche bun with homemade chips and draft beer from 32 North, Pilsner the Conqueror. Available as an all-day special. Cost: $28

For the drink enthusiast the Ant-Man inspired Pym Particles Shooters have made their way into the starting line-up.
