The ‘Beer Down’ Fan Promotion from Recess in Chicago’s West Loop. Starting September 18 against the Packers, Recess is offering fans giveaway swag, jersey raffles, special game day menus and a chance to win a VIP party for ten during each Bears broadcast. 

To kick-off the season, Recess is hosting a Kick-off Tailgate Party from 5:00-7:00 p.m. September 18th by grilling up complimentary sliders (one per guest), patio games, and swag giveaways. 

The way the seasonal promotion works is: groups of four or more that visit Recess to catch Bears games beginning Sept. 18 will have their “team” photo added to the new ‘Beer Down’ Board, making them eligible to win prizes all season long. Prizes will be awarded to teams as they accumulate stickers with each visit to Recess throughout the fall for games.

The prize tiers include items like free menu items, Recess and Atomic Hospitality gift cards, and more.

Fans will also become eligible to win a Bears jersey in a free raffle every Bears gameday when they fill out their Recess Jersey Cards, which will be distributed before and during games. The only way to win prizes is to be at Recess during the drawing. 

Food and drink specials will be available all day for Bears game days and every Sunday during the football season, including a variety of themed cocktails, beer buckets, football-themed large formats and a selection of gameday eats.

A new addition to the campaign this year is Recess’ BEARS HOME GAME SHUTTLE services. For only $10 fans can get a ride on the official Recess shuttle bus, which will operate to and from Soldier Field. The first shuttle is scheduled for the game on September 25th. Fans can visit OpenTable to book their tickets.
