In case you missed it last week, Deal Chicken has been ramping up the local deals this spring. There’s lots to choose from. I love buying daily deals to try out a place that I haven’t been to before. Many times I love the place so much I become a return customer!
Here’s a look at some of the deals being offered for local establishments:
- Classic Irish pub experience at McGeorge’s (De Pere)
- 50% off craft cocktails, wine and craft beer from The Libertine
- 50% off dry cleaning services at Lindeman’s Cleaning
- 50% off at Maria’s Mexican Family Restaurant (Howard)
Deal Chicken is the daily deal site run by Gannett, owners of the Green Bay Press Gazette, Appleton Post Crescent and many other area newspapers.
Here’s the perfect place to take my Irish husband: McGeorge’s in De Pere. Right now you can get 50% off classic Irish pub experience at McGeorge’s. Spend $15 for a $30 voucher.
- $15 for $30 worth of classic Irish pub fare

As with any daily deal, make sure you read all rules and restrictions before you buy.

It’s not that difficult to drive across town. Really, it isn’t. I do it all the time. Even though I was born and raised on the west side, I can and do go to the east side of Green Bay quite often.
A friend of mine who lived here for many years (but was not a native) always thought it was funny that Green Bay had at least two of most big-name stores: one for the east side and one for the west.
I’ve talked to many people who do not shop at stores like Woodmans or Big Lots because they live on one side of the town and there’s only one store, “way over on the other side of town”.
It’s not just the river, either. It’s the outlying communities. De Pere to Howard is sooo far away for some people. Or Scott to Bellevue. Yet I also know many people (including my husband) who commute every day from Green Bay to Appleton or vice versa. A 30-minute commute in other cities is nothing.
Ashwaubenon/Howard/West Siders, how many times have you had a conversation with someone from East Green Bay/Bellevue/De Pere, and the other person says, “I’m not going to go way over there!”
When we moved back to Green Bay following several years in Damn Near Dykesville, we picked a house in an excellent location, close to schools, church, and shopping. It’s probably because of this I found myself falling into the Green Bay-itis trap. Luckily I realized it and put a stop to it!
Piggly Wiggly is 6 miles from my house yet I go all the way out to Howard when there’s a good reason to partake in Olsen’s Double Coupon days.
I’ve never let a few miles deter me from a fabulous deal, a great restaurant, or a family-friendly event!
Green Bay-itis has been around since I can remember, even when gasoline was cheap.
All kidding aside, I think Green Bay-itis is part of the reason the city seems to retain that small-town feel even as the population grows.
Do you suffer from Green Bay-itis? Admitting it is the first step to recovery!
The Cat’s Pajamas, a five man a cappella vocal band, will be live in concert at the De Pere High School auditorium on Tuesday, February 26 at 7:30pm. The show is a part of their Music in Schools program, which raises money for school music programs.
The Cat’s Pajamas currently perform in Branson, MO, most of the time, but you might have seen them on the NBC show, “The Sing Off.” They perform a variety of songs from the 50′s through today (you can get their cover of Lady Gaga’s “Born This Way” on iTunes!) so there is something for everyone at their show.
General admission tickets are $10 and reserved seating is $15.
