We’re back with another of “Meehandering the 312” and this time it’s all about bars! These were pretty hard to compile because there’s so many options in the city. I love sticking around my place in Lincoln Park and usually avoid going out downtown/Wrigley, but tried my best to include a few different neighborhoods!

You’re not ready to go home at bar close: Big City Tap
You just want to see a turtle race: Big Joe’s
You want a grown up Chuck E. Cheese but not quite Dave and Busters: Headquarters
You’re reminiscing on college bars and beer prices: Hook and Ladder
You want to go out downtown but avoid the club scene: Stout
You want to go out downtown and love country music: Old Crow
