Foursquare Tips

  • Gotta get the tots...
  • "When you have a TV," bartender Nick Rahn explains, "it creates an ambience where everyone's staring in a corner." This tavern has enough distractions with a draft list, tater tots, and a photo booth.
  • The urinals are great@
  • Tonic water gets you drunker than soda pop. Vodka Tonic. Do it.
  • cash only:(
  • Seen some interesting acts here...
  • Everyone talks about the tater tots here. F*ck that. The mac n cheese is where it's at.
  • Really dark. Pinball machine that works 50% of the time.
  • skylark burger is a must. pairs well with three floyds gumballhead.
  • have a burger. drink a few beers. then, try to fit as many people as possible - strangers, too! - into the old fashion photo booth so you can remember your good times. silly faces are a must.
  • Mmmmm! Burger + Jack and coke :-)
  • have the mac & cheese
  • Perogis and zombie dust
  • Make sure you tell people, "look over there," so you can steal their tots while they're not looking! Works like a charm.
  • Mac N Cheese = yummy (and really huge)!
  • Tell Dano you love his hair!
  • Called "McGowan's Pub" in the show, this bar was where many of the Irish gangsters would meet to discuss their tactics and corruption along with their leader, Hugh Killian (Patrick St. Esprit).
  • The East Pilsen community center. Good food, $2 PBR, and 'atmosphere'
  • Best prices in the city
  • Not faux dive, dive dive
