The Centennial Wheel at Navy Pier is ready to party and so are we!

Stop by DMK Burger Bar & Fish Bar Friday, 5/27 from 3pm-6pm and “Get High” with the new ferris wheel, DMK, and our amigos from Lagunitas Brewing Co. (get it, the ferris wheel gets you high and Lagunitas likes to be high and… it all makes perfect sense!)

Spin our very own wheel and win all kinds of Lagunitas and DMK prizes (beer, food, t-shirts, koozies, oh my)…

AND it’s on a Friday so of course you can leave work early. #tgif
