Stimulate the economy one shot at a time

SHARE Stimulate the economy one shot at a time

To help alleviate the financial crisis many of us are in, Excalibur Nightclub (632 N. Dearborn) is starting 312 Stimulus Wednesdays. Basically a reason to party on the cheap during the week, Excalibur offers $3 Smirnoff, Bacardi, Cuervo, Malibu, etc. cocktails along with $2 domestic brews.

But the real deal (umm, maybe) is the $1 shots theyll offer all night. The only catch: Its dealers choice, so who knows what kind of concoctions the bartenders will be offering. So, its kind of like playing the stock market lately, only much cheaper (and probably a lot drunker).

Doors open at 9 p.m. and the deals are in effect all the way to 4 a.m.
