They have daily drink specials, such as $2 shot of tequila or a lemon drop, and $3 Bacardi O3 (the large bottle). The staff is pretty friendly, like you would expect from your local neighborhood bar, so strike up a conversation and see if your drinks start tasting better.
A few times per year, they'll have nationally touring bands, but mostly it's the best bands in the region (including from nearby Chicago, IL). They do have some specialty scheduled days (see below), but any other day there is usually a pretty good rock cover band:
First Thursday of every month: Comedy Night. The guy I saw was actually a comedian hypnotist who used audience volunteers. I'll just let you imagine the sick, funny things people will do when they are hypnotized!
First Friday of every month: "Jamaica Me Crazy," i.e. Reggae Night. It’s not my favorite type of music, but I can't imagine anywhere else in this farming region where you could see live reggae.
Last Thursday of every month: "Jam Night," i.e. Open Mic Night
Holidays: the better gigs of the year
For a great evening, I suggest starting off with dinner at one of the downtown restaurants, then go to Schu's Bar & Grill for Happy Hour so that after 9pm, you won't have to stagger farther than a few feet to get to Czar's.
