Foursquare Tips

  • If you've been searching for the real world equivalent of HIMYM's MacLaren's, look no further. You've arrived.
  • They have an extensive video game collection. I highly recommend browsing through it before ultimately deciding upon playing drunken "Goldeneye" with friends.
  • 1 of my favs in e. Lakeview. Not a pretending pub or cliche college bar.A REAL BAR that's hip. Darts, pooltable,VINTAGE NINTENDO and a small Library. Little rough & grungy inside, but its freakin cool
  • HIMYM dreams coming true.
  • Best Sunday night karaoke ever!
  • Alden is the best bartender evaaaaa
  • Free popcorn and Mario Cart. Need I say more?
  • trivia night on Tuesdays. first night here... pretty good crowd!
  • Thursday $4 you call 'ems. When it isn't flooding from downpours, this place is the best.
  • Get into a boxing match with Nolan. Dude throws down!
  • Really like this bar, but it's started getting a puke/gross smell as it's gotten more popular.
  • Great tunes
  • Get a spot for darts! So fun!
  • Great Bar! Great Location! Great books, believe it or not. A bar with a library and a couch--who would have thought! LOL.
  • Hold your forefinger and thumb in a circle gesture below your waist and make Justin look at it. When he does, punch him in the shoulder as hard as you can.
  • Don't serve food, but you can byo from Chipmunks. Two steel-tip dart boards (line is a little far back, don't get discouraged), pool table, video games, awesome bartenders.
  • Becoming my go-to place for a fun few hours in Lincoln Park. They have old school video games, darts and pool. Solid bar with a good beer selection.
  • Bring your own N64 games to play. Actually, go around the corner to Renaldi's for pizza, bring it back with you and eat while you play. You'll have the best night in a while.
  • Irish pun I'm Chicago. Have a Guinness!
  • $2 PBR everyday, $3 Labatt tall boys everyday
