So we do this every year. Basically, we close every fourth of July to honor our independence and drink lots of whiskey and blow stuff up. So that’s fair warning. We are closed July 4th.
Now, second order of business, new Burgers of The Month at both of our locations! Without further ado:
We’ve been fans of Trap Them for some time and these guys have a new record, appropriately titled Blissfucker, out and we couldn’t be more stoked. We encourage you to come eat their namesake burger and then immediately run home and order their new record from Prothetic Records here: http://prostheticrecords.com/blissfucker/
- 10 oz. patty
- Pork Tenderloin
- Pineapple-Jalapeño Salsa
- Queso Cotila
- Cactus Tortilla Chips
- Habanero Mayo
We’re pretty big fans of smoked out riffs and headbanging just like these guys and hopefully everyone else will be as hype on them as we are. Buy their new record here.
- 10oz beef patty
- Apricot mustard
- Blackened mashed potatoes
- Fried pork tenderloin
- Potato strings
- Sautéed spinach and sun dried tomatoes
If you’re like us, literally the first thing you do when you wake up from sleeping in a bedroom with no air conditioning during a hot summer night is crave 10 oz. of ground beef.
So, that being the case, we present the burgers of the month at both of our locations!
It occurred to us that it was nearly criminal that these classic shredders didn’t have a burger in their honor so that being said we present:
- 10oz Patty
- Veal Schnitzel
- Roasted Garlic Mayonnaise
- Sauteed Leek
These guys haven’t done a release recently but, we’d like them to. We’d like them to schedule some practices and give us more volume. So without further ado:
- 10oz Patty
- Sweet Soy Sauce
- Grilled Scallion
- Fried Glass Noodles
- Sauteed Shallots
- Red Bell Peppers
So, as mentioned, BOTH Kuma’s locations are closed Sunday to celebrate the 4/20 holiday. There is another holiday scheduled for that day as well but we aren’t completely familiar with how it all works.
In addition, Saturday (tomorrow) is Record Store Day! And in conjunction with our friends at Reckless Records, we’ve got some very special lunch guests stopping by. Papa Emeritus of Ghost and his Ghouls will be joining us briefly Saturday morning (around 11:30am) before their appearance at Reckless Records Broadway!
In celebration of this momentous occasion, we are offering the GHOST burger for this day ONLY and ONLY at our Belmont Ave. location. If you didn’t get a chance to sink your teeth into this in October, take our advice and do it now. It may never be available again.
In addition, in honor of Reckless Records and Record Store day, bring your receipt in from any Reckless Records location dated 04/19/14 and receive 15% off your food purchase at either Kuma’s location (valid only 04/19/14).
Please add to list of things that must be consumed post haste. New BOTM’s at both locations!
The third and final of our collaborations with our friends at Dryhop Brewing, we present the Corrections House!
- Braised Pork Ribs
- Apple Butter BBQ
- Cheddar Polenta
- Caramelized Red Onion
- Fresh Arugula
We’ve been huge fans of these guys for quite a hot minute. Come have a bite of Valkyrie!
- Herbed Cream Cheese
- Breaded Deep Fried Pancetta
- Bruschetta Mix
- Fresh Basil
Maybe you wanted to know about the burgers of the month? Let us help you with that!
For February, each location has an amazing offering:
Kuma’s Corner -
Continuing our collaboration series with DryHop Brewing and the Illinois Craft Brewers Guild, we present an homage to an amazing band and some longtime regulars Russian Circles:
- Braised Venison
- Sharp White Cheddar
- Horseradish Aioli
- Frizzled Beets
And to go along with it, DryHop has brewed an amazing beer available at both locations during the month of March in honor of these guys as well. Death Rides A Horse is a Russian Imperial Stout and weighs in at a dizzying 8% abv.
We don’t know of many bands from Ireland in general. But TOME gives us hope that good things do exist there in that regard.
- Corned Beef
- Stout Braised Onions
- Potatoes O’Brien
- Whole Grain Honey Mustard
Come fucking eat!
JUST to keep you all updated, we have some things we are pretty damned excited about to share with you.
First: Burgers of The Month.
you may recall we did a burger for these hashers a good while ago and we thought it was appropriate to pay them their dues for working so hard and releasing their new record “Whales and Leeches” (and, subsequently, appearing on the David Letterman Show! You guys nailed it!). So, we teamed up with our friends at Dryhop Brewing and the Illinois Craft Brewers Guild to commemorate these dudes being awesome by doing a second burger as well as a beer in their honor! The burger description is below. The beer, which will only be available on tap at Kuma’s locations and at Dryhops brewpub ( 3155 N. Broadway, Chicago) is an 8% Imperial Red Ale called Reverse Thunder and we couldn’t be more excited. This is the first of three collaborations we’ll be doing together so keep your eyes peeled for those over the next couple of months.
RED FANG II
- housemade jalapeño beer cheese
- Cain and Able battered Onion rings
- housemade bourbon barbecue sauce
A lot of you are fans of the band Mastodon and for good reason. We’ve had a burger in their honor for years now. But, did you know that before Mastodon a couple of these gentlemen were in an enormously underrated band that was blowing minds of small club goers as early as 1992? That band was called Lethargy. We pay the following homage to them:
- fried bacon
- mustard braised turkey breast
- spicy ricotta cheese
- oatmeal stout battered and fried crimini mushrooms
Second: As we mentioned previously, Kuma’s Too now offers delivery! Seven days a week you can have beef delivered to your door. Our delivery window is 4pm to 9:30! It’s snowing and it’s cold and you know you’d rather sit inside and watch tv and gorge on beef than setting up chairs in the street to drive over and pick it up. So let us do the work for you! Go to http://www.grubhub.com and search for Kuma’s Too or, just click HERE and place your order tonight!
As we are every year, Kuma’s Corner and Kuma’s Too will be closed on Christmas Eve, Christmas day, New Years Eve, and New Years Day. Make sure you fill up on beef and whiskey to hold you over on those days and we’ll see you back at our normal operating hours afterwards!
Also, a very exciting note, Kuma’s Too is now delivering! We’ve partnered up with our friends at Grub Hub to deliver our burgers to your door! Please note, at this time, this service is only available from Kuma’s Too. Go to Grub Hub ( http://www.grubhub.com) when you don’t feel like leaving your couch because you’re watching reruns of Much Music and let us bring the beef to you!
Although recent research has revealed that the Pilgrims did not eat Turkey as has been widely believed in this country but ate deer at the first thanksgiving, we much prefer it. So, tomorrow we will be partaking in that meal with our families instead of slinging burgers. We encourage you to do the same. We will reopen at our normal time at both locations on friday to feed your post target trample hunger and thirst.
Alright alright alright. The smoke has cleared a little bit but we’re going to light up another one. The special at both Kuma’s locations is, as it is every november, the SLEEP
- 8oz Turkey Patty
- Cranberry Jelly
- Tempura Fried Stuffing Patty
- Turkey Gravy
- Fried Sage
Come fucking eat!
We’d like to let you know that both of our locations will be CLOSED on Tuesday October 29th. However, both of our locations will be OPEN on Halloween! This will be your absolute last chance to try the Ghost or the Pig Mtn. at each of their respective locations before Sleep takes over your life! Just a little over two weeks…
