Olympic Tavern offers free beer for IDOT workers

ROCKFORD, Ill. (WIFR) -- Dodging cones for months or years due to construction can be quite frustrating for both drivers and local businesses. Now one Rockford business has resorted to "beer bribery" to help relieve their construction headaches.

Passing by Olympic Tavern on North Main St. we will see a new sign outside. The sign now reads "Free Beer for IDOT Crew if Roadwork is Done by Monday".

The sign was put up last week and Monday has already come and passed, but Olympic Tavern owner Zack Rotello is still holding out hope the construction will be over soon.
