UPchicago Bar Crawl: Old Town

UPchicago Bar Crawl: Old Town

We are on a mission to perfect the art of the neighborhood bar crawl… and I’m not gonna lie, I think we may have accomplished our goal with this one. Good beer, good pub food, so-bad-it’s-good karaoke, and one member mysteriously disappearing mid-crawl? Yep, we’ve officially done it.

Nightlife in Beverly & Mount Greenwood

If you’re on the south side of Chicago and you’re a wee bit thirsty for a pint, Western Avenue’s got you covered.

Turtle Racing at Big Joe’s

If you’re in the 98% percentile of Americans who have never seen a turtle race, this is definitely worth a visit. Friday night at this Lincoln Square watering hole every dollar you spend on drinks buys you a raffle ticket, which positions you one step closer to sponsoring a turtle.

Liberty Lounge (Bar, Roscoe Village)

Liberty is the perfect mix of blue collar, hipster, and down home Chicago. It’s no-frills but warm, just the way I like my dives.

Chicago Spring Break Staycation

Chicago Spring Break Staycation

With gas prices skyrocketing, road trips and flights to exotic beach locales are becoming a luxury not all of us can afford. But that doesn’t mean you can’t take a break from the norm. Check our our picks for a fabulous Chicago spring break staycation!

Cho Sun Ok (Restaurant, North Center)

This restaurant isn’t about wowing the crowds; it’s about the food. The delicious, delicious food.

Kincades (Bar, Lincoln Park)

Good food and beer specials, a rowdy crowd, and karaoke & trivia nights. What more could you want in a Lincoln Park bar?

Lemmings (Bar, Bucktown)

Lemmings is a Bucktown safe haven for those whose worst nightmare is an evening spent at Cans or Wicker Park Tavern.

Flo Cafe & Bar (Restaurant, Ukrainian Village)

This quaint little southwestern cafe serves up delicious food and even more delicious hot sauces.

The Apartment (Bar, Lincoln Park)

This bar/lounge, located above Lion’s Head Pub, is set-up exactly like its namesake, a real apartment.

Sports Corner (Bar, Wrigleyville)

You really can’t beat a place with a roof deck in the summer, affording you views of the surrounding neighborhood most likely swarming with inebriated Cubs fans.

Gamekeepers (Bar, Lincoln Park)

Gamekeepers is the quintessential Lincoln Park 4am (5am on Saturdays) bar.

They’re Hot and They’re Cold: The Soupbox

Since its opening in 1995, The Soupbox has offered a refreshingly simple experience — good soup and bread.

Jerry’s (Wicker Park, Restaurant)

For a leisurely lunch on a Saturday afternoon, head to Jerry’s with your game face on. It’s time to tackle some tough decisions and a delicious sandwich.
