Pizza Beer & Jukebox offers the perfect lunch break for kids in Chicago

CHICAGO -- A Chicago restaurant is offering children a lunch break that's filled with safe fun!

Pizza, Beer, and Jukebox, also known as PB&J, is inviting children and their parents for some good food and some safe fun every Thursday from 11 a.m to 2 p.m. They offer chalk, coloring books, and much more.

Owner Matthew McCahill said the idea stemmed from seeing his own children not interacting enough with other children.

"We want the kids to kind of see each other and be able to wave and talk to each other from across the table," said McCahill.

McCahill and his brother Josh McCahill opened up the restaurant in Chicago's West Loop during the summer time as a result of both brothers losing their jobs due to the pandemic.

McCahill said they are following CDC rules. He mentions that if five or more kids from the same class show up, PB&J will deliver a free pizza to their teacher.
