With eight TVs (inevitably tuned to Bears, Cubs, and the Fighting Illini) and a plethora of drafts (Fat Tire, Stella, Woodchuck cider) it's clear you're waist-deep in jock country here. Test your sports knowledge in the Tuesday night trivia contest, when pints are priced at $3, or throw a sports-themed party in the back room with ten (count 'em) TVs. The feel-good, hangover-friendly food—crispy Reuben rolls, deep-fried mac-and-cheese bites—are served when you need them most: Saturdays and Sundays from 11am to 2pm.
