Free Bar Food 

Wine and Dine

Free red beans and rice on Mondays used to be an institution at many local watering holes, but some places have expanded on the old favorite. Here are a few spots offering something extra to complement bar offerings.

Handsome Willy's (218 S. Robertson St., 525-0377;

Get a free dinner (steak tacos, fried pork chops, burgers and brisket are in the rotation) every Friday during happy hour from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. at the funkiest former brothel in town.

The Maison (508 Frenchmen St., 371-5543;

Maison grills up free barbecue every Thursday at 7 p.m., inviting patrons to protein-load before hitting the dance floor.

Mick's Irish Pub (4801 Bienville St., 482-9113;

Red beans and rice are what's for dinner every Monday night at Mick's. Anything from hot dogs to chicken pot pie might be on the Mid-City bar's free lunch menu Tuesday through Friday. On weekends, you're on your own.

Pal's Lounge (949 N. Rendon St., 488-7257)

Mondays, Wednesdays and Sundays at roughly 6 p.m., Pal's dishes up free red beans and rice, hot wings and pasta, respectively.

Rendezvous Tavern (3101 Magazine St., 891-1777)

Spicy chicken curry and vegetarian fare from Nirvana Indian Cuisine are free every Sunday afternoon and provide a flavorful counterpoint to cold brews.

Yellow Moon Bar (800 France St., 944-0441;

Bring your finger-snapping and your appetite to poetry night on Wednesdays, when the Yellow Moon owners cook up chicken, spaghetti, salads and more to serve as the cornerstone for a potluck dinner.
