Got the #BasketballBlues? BJ’s Restaurants, Inc. Helps Fans Overcome Sadness During Basketball Championship Season

5 Reasons to Commiserate and Watch the Games at BJ’s Restaurant & Brewhouse®

HUNTINGTON BEACH, Calif., March 09, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- BJ’s Restaurants, Inc. (NASDAQ:BJRI) today declared March as a month of sadness. Between the upsets and busted office pools BJ’s Restaurant & Brewhouse® is prepared to help its guests deal with their “Basketball Blues.” Sports fans can commiserate, connect and relive the moments with fellow fans at BJ’s Restaurants nationwide from March 14 through April 4.

“The tournament has one winner and 67 losers, which means more fans are feeling defeated as the games progress. We realized those fans need a place to get together and commiserate,” said Kevin Mayer, EVP, Chief Marketing Officer of BJ's Restaurants, Inc. “They can now cope with the five stages of basketball grief at BJ’s Restaurant & Brewhouse® with great food and award-winning beer.”

Here are 5 reasons why BJ’s Restaurant & Brewhouse® is among the best places to watch the games:

1. Get $10 off $35.
Losing the game is one thing; losing $10 off your bill is something else. Now through April 4, receive $10 off with a minimum food purchase of $35. Visit for the offer and promotion details.

2. Enjoy All-New Daily Brewhouse Specials.
BJ’s is offering up its big-screen TVs, along with discounted food and drinks. Enjoy food and beverage specials all day Monday through Thursday at participating restaurants. Mondays feature Half Off Large Pizzas and a $5 El Jimador Margarita. On Tuesdays get $3 Pizookie® desserts and half off wine. Wednesdays include $10 Loaded Burgers and $4 BJ’s Handcrafted Beers, and Thursdays include $13.95 Baby Back Pork Ribs and $5 Call Drinks.

3. Sip Award-Winning Craft Beers.
If the halo of televisions that ring the bar aren't enough for you to camp out during the games, perhaps BJ’s award-winning beers are. In addition to the 11 signature beers and cider on tap, BJ’s also offers seasonal and local brews crafted at its own breweries. Your team may not have a fairy tale ending, but BJ’s craft beers are Cinderella stories in their own right (with more than 160 accolades to prove it).
4. Find Something For Everyone.
Come for the deep-dish pizza or indulge in a loaded burger. Don’t want to bust your office pool and your diet? Find a better-for-you option on the EnLIGHTened Entrees® menu featuring superfoods, low-calorie, vegetarian and gluten-free entrees. The menu at BJ’s offers something for everyone.
5. Eat Your Heart Out With A Pizookie®.
Sometimes there’s no better way to cheer yourself up than with a world famous Pizookie®. Each hot-out-of-the-oven cookie is baked to order and topped with vanilla bean or Ghirardelli® double chocolate chip ice cream. There are 10 Pizookie® flavors, including Chocolate Chunk, Cookies ‘n’ Cream, Salted Caramel, Peanut Butter, Monkey Bread and more. This one-of-a-kind dessert—never duplicated, but often imitated—is worth eating your feelings for.
