Best Eats & Drinks This Week: Radio Bar, Macchialina Pop-Up, and WD 555
After last week's holiday, this Monday seems even more painful than usual. Dreams of coffee alarm clocks and espresso showers were not enough to get us moving this week. Our motivation is rooted in something almost as important as caffeine: pay checks.

The beginning of the month is always a killer on the wallet. With necessities like rent and utilities taking all your cash, you might think you are destined for a week without drinks with friends or dinner out. Think again. From a cool spot to watch the game, to a luxe date night on the cheap, to the premier of Macchialina's new sandwich pop-up, we've got your back.
Heat Viewing Party & Happy Hour at Radio Bar
Whether tonight's game ends in disappointing defeat or thundering victory, you're going to want to be among fans. Head to Radio Bar in SoFi tonight to watch the game. Come early and take advantage of their Happy Hour from 6 to 8 p.m. with two-for-ones on their signature cocktails. Stay for the game with five-for-$20 PBR buckets or five-for-$25 Corona & Heineken buckets. Other perks include endless bowls of fresh popcorn and halftime entertainment games including pool, wallhooky and life-sized Jenga.

Open at 6 tonight, Quattro on Lincoln Road is a great place to take your date and still catch the game. Each month, twin chefs Nicola and Fabrizio Carro will introduce a $39 three-course prix-fixe dinner menu, available on Mondays, spotlighting cuisines of Italy. The series kicks off tonight with Piedmont, the twins' homeland. Tonight's menu starts off with choice of beef tartar or a fresh salad. Second course options include Risotto with Castelmagno cheese in veal sauce, sheep ricotta gnocchi with spinach, beech mushroom parmesan fondue or braised beef cheek in Barbera wine with creamy polenta. Dessert options are an amaretti flan with caramel sauce and cream gelato or sweet focaccia and gianduia chocolate salsa. Bottles from Piedmont are also 20 percent off.
