Derby: Photo preview
Whether it’s the Kentucky Derby or roller derby, the TVs at this new Lincoln Park tavern (from Big Onion Tavern Group, which also owns, , and Jack's Bar & Grill) will be showing it. The bar, which will have its grand opening on December 16, will also be showing off two antique Soap Box Derby cars that hang from the ceiling, as well as its Southern-leaning menu of eats (Kentucky Hot Brown, fried pickles, corn-bread skillet, cheese grits, pecan pie and so on) and drinks (mint juleps, sweet tea cocktails, etc, plus 24 beers on draft). A 12,000-square-foot patio with its own bar will be open year-round. 1224 W Webster Ave (773-248-0900).
