Eight Days A Week

July 2017 View more

Most people probably don’t head out for a night on the town governed solely by which restaurant or bar happens to be running the most attractive nightly special. Rather, these types of promotions tend to be surprising by nature, a happy accident of discovery as one settles into the booth.

But if the impressive range of food and drink specials we unearthed in a thorough survey of downtown Naperville’s bustling dining scene is any indication, maybe it’s time to flip that model. Plan your week based on who’s offering the best deals when—because from the look of this list, every night of the week holds the potential to be something truly special.
