    Full house for the Mr. Blotto Christmas show but only one bar open and two bartenders who are working incredibly hard, to their credit.

    Place gets packed! Service is better than expected. Still order extra beers if you plan on really drinking before the game.

    This iconic bar is mostly known as a place for sports fans, but it regularly books local and touring acts, offering fans the chance to see major bands in a small room. Read more

    Located across the street from historic Wrigley Field, it goes beyond being "the place" for Cubs post-game parties. Check out Live Salsa Sundays! at The Cubby Bear here: http://bit.ly/1s1iUab

    Loud, boring, and packed with the party till you puke crowd on most nights, the only reason to stop by this place is if your friend's band is playing.

    You may not be a Cubs fan now, but after two hours of cheap drafts, Chicago-style dogs, and Midwestern women sporting pinstriped jerseys, you’ll be calling yourself a resident of Wrigleyville.
