The Northern Quarter institution Shack – which moved across to a new site on High Street a couple of years ago – is no exception.
The popular bar and grill is knocking its food bills in half throughout January if you dine between Monday and Friday.
That means 50% off burgers (including the massive Shack Attack burger and the Salt and Pepper chicken stack), buttermilk chicken, loaded fries and mac and cheese bowls.
It also means half-price brunches, with full breakfasts, chicken and waffles, and French toast all on the menu.
The 50% off discount is available to anyone who books in advance, though even if you fancy a walk-in Shack will knock 20% off your food bill.
Shack’s usual deals – like its happy hour drinks offers and the weekend bottomless disco brunch (£30 per person with prosecco, mimosas, bellinis and selected beers, or £40 to upgrade to bottomless pornstar martinis and frozen margaritas) – are still available too.
The fun carries on in its new basement bar, Lost Weekend, too.
The underground late-night bar is kitted out with pool tables, beer pong, air hockey and more – and they’re offering free gaming all month.
Visit between Thursday and Saturday and you can play for free, and enjoy two cocktails for £10 all night long.
There’ll be a small food menu on offer at Lost Weekend too.
They’ll be screening the all-American sports event through the night (kick-off isn’t until 11.30pm UK time), including the half-time show which this year will star Dr Dre, Snoop Dogg, Eminem, Mary J. Blige and Kendrick Lamar.
Ian Harris, general manager at Vue Manchester Printworks, said: “As the home of the biggest screen in Manchester, we’ve always taken pride in offering the very best of big screen entertainment possible for film fans and families looking to escape into the latest blockbusters.
“With our fully refreshed IMAX screen and newly installed Recliner offering across all 19 of our other screens, we’re hugely excited to see the people of Manchester enjoy the best that film and big screen events have to offer in the best and most luxurious seats in the house.”
Every year, the British Street Food Awards highlights the very best chefs from the scene – and this summer, the northern heat will be held right here in Manchester.
Hosted by Manchester’s biggest and friendliest street food operator GRUB in partnership with newcomer Circle Square, the city will welcome the Northern Heat of the British Street Food Awards (BSFA) on Saturday 27 and Sunday 28 August.
This year, the line up includes local favourites Unagi street food and suhi, 2020 Best Burger winners Porco and Kara’s Kitchen, who is known for serving up paellas with a twist.
That’s not all. You’ll also find authentic Sri Lankan food from Archchi’s, Posh Street Food from former Master Chef Professional Matei Baran, Shoot The Bull, plus more from Ted’s tacos, Skullduggery, Pellizco and DOSA.
Taking place at Circle Square from 12 noon until 8pm, across two days some of the best street food traders in the region will come together for the event with a fully-stocked beer bar from North Brewing Co.
Food fans will have a chance to sample some of the best street food traders from across the region and cast their votes for the People’s Choice over the weekend alongside a stellar line-up of judges, including former BSFA champion Claire Kelsey of Ginger’s Comfort Emporium inside Afflecks.
The event in Manchester will mark the last of four regional heats, at the end of which the winners will be chosen by the general public and expert judges.
The winners will then go on to the grand finals in London next month.
