So why Maxwells? As we mentioned in our debut spotlight, we are looking for places with great deals and great upcoming events worth posting and as it seems, Maxwells has a few events and specials worth sharing at this time. It is also a great local spot for a nice indoor dinner or patio seating on those nice days when you want to sit downtown and watch the world go by.
Let's start with tonight (this blog post was posted on February 28th) as Syracuse favorite Jess Novak will perform live from 7-9 PM before going on tour until the end of March. And starting at 9, it is Mardi Gras Open Mic Night and admission is free for both events.
On Thursday nights, you can stop in at 7-9 PM for Trivia Night. Not only will you find $7 select beer pitchers and $2 off wings but prizes for all including last place.
Do you search for Happy Hour specials after a long day at work? Maxwells has Happy Hour specials 4-7 PM every Monday-Saturday with $2 off craft beer pints, $3 well drinks and $4 house wine plus $5 bite specials.
On March 8th, you can enjoy these specials as well as complimentary chef inspired appetizers from 4-7 PM for their Chef's Happy Hour.
How about their St. Patty's live music night with Buddish on March 18th starting at 10 PM with no cover charge? Brick oven pizzas starting at $9? Or if you are a college student with a valid ID, did you know you can save 15% off your food purchase so long as it is not in conjunction with any other deal?
Downtown Syracuse contains so many great food and drink establishments that deserve all the attention they get and this list should include Maxwells. I will admit that we here at Cuse Cheap may be slightly biased (though we will gladly spotlight any local business with great deals and events without prejudice) as when we first started this venture, Maxwells was one of the first and friendliest places to interact with us but shouldn't that be something that also deserves recognition? They saw we were trying to make a positive difference in Syracuse and CNY and were supportive not only of us but ensuring that people see the positives in our city and our people including other local businesses. We have visited Maxwell's and the food (don't get me started on how good the chicken parm was), the hospitality and the experience in general made us fans even more than before we walked in the door.
We hope you will check it out for yourself and see why you can find great deals, great events and why you should Eat, Drink and Chill at Maxwell's in Hanover Square.
