This spot’s a typical, charming, pool-table dive distinguished by its namesake: the tiny woman who pours the drinks. Certain nights can be a real sausage fest, including some baldies from Chicago’s Finest, and every one of them gives her a huge bear hug. Tip her right and you might start getting hugs, too.
