Fun times can turn on a dime this summer.
Ginger Monkey, a tavern in the Phoenix suburb of Chandler, has found a new way for customers to beat the heat in scorching Arizona without breaking the bank.
Through the end of July, when the local temperature hits 110, guests can stop in that day or evening and get their first drink — a domestic draft, well drink or non alcoholic drink — for only 10 cents.
W”we decided to fight fire with fire: an extreme deal for this extreme heat,” says Ginger Monkey co-owner Jackson Armstrong. ” Yogi Berra once said, ‘a nickel ain’t worth a dime anymore,’ but two nickels will get you a cold drink at Ginger Monkey this summer.”
Ginger Monkey, which opened late last year, is open for lunch and dinner. It offers a full bar with 30 craft beers on tap and 30 by the bottle, as well as 17 wines by the glass or bottle and many signature “Monkey Play” cocktails.
Ginger Monkey is located on the southwest corner of Arizona and Ocotillo, 135 W Ocotillo Rd., in Chandler.
