Woooooo! Heyyyyyyy! Yeahhhhh! Work is over and we’re drinking!!! There isn’t much else to say at South Branch, an enormous, loud and incredibly busy terminal of after-work drinking in the Loop. Mirror displays accented with birch trees every few feet made us feel kind of loopy—or maybe that was just the fact that we kept mixing up our “tall” gin and tonics with our lowball water glasses.
