Farragut’s (Bar, Andersonville)
Location: 5240 N. Clark St.
Phone: (773) 728-4903
The fine bartenders at Mary’s and Marty’s set the bar pretty high and, well, got at least this writer fairly buzzed. That’s one of the nice things about a bar crawl: the crawl part. The fresh air on the walk to Farragut’s revitalized the troop and in we went.
The crowd at Farragut’s, if three can be a crowd, was definitely not on a bar crawl. And they had definitely not been revitalized by any fresh air. A few grunts and groans were cast in our direction, but to be fair it was a Monday night and maybe these were just regulars trying to enjoy a quiet drink and catch the football game. We ended up ordering a pitcher of Leinenkugel, which I can say with confidence is an order that sums up Farragut’s.
While I resisted the urge to hit up the jukebox, the natives were already restless, I couldn’t resist the chance to shoot some pool with David and Phil. Any bar with a well-kept pool table gets a gold star in my book, and this more than made up for the less-than-inviting staff/regulars.
The time came to move on and so we all slammed the rest of our Leine’s as Jackie gave the bar a special goodbye. Time to take in another hit of fresh air before heading to Simon’s.
