Yelp sponsors 1/2 off drink specials


News that Yelp is facing a class-action lawsuit was so last week. March rings in Yelp Drinks Week, through Sunday, which may be the company's way of rallying--or at least watering--the troops with subsidized alcohol at nine metro restaurants.

The discounts at Kim Bartmann's restaurants aren't so deep (is $3 PBR considered a deal?), but the $5 handcrafted cocktails at spots like OM and Bradstreet are as good a reason as any to go out for an Agni or a Moscow Mule. I'm curious to try W.A. Frost's Star Anise Sour made with star anise-and-cinnamon infused brandy and house-made sweet and sour--sounds perfect for fireside sipping. Here's a full list of the restaurants/beverages:

OM: Agni ($4.50) Muddled fresh limes & Thai chiles shaken with Sobiesky Vodka & a splash of simple syrup, garnished with a Thai chile Monsoon ($4.50) Fresh muddled cucumbers & green apples shaken with Sobiesky Vodka & Apple Pucker, garnished with an apple slice The Slumdog ($4.50) Sobiesky Vodka with ginger, lime, cilantro & lemonade served on the rocks with a lemon twist
