The Run Down

The truth is that there are a million and one ways to have a classic Chicago outing. It’s the blessing and curse of living in a city with as many beautiful traditions, neighborhoods and attractions. What’s most important to remember is that big bucks don’t always buy you the best experience. Chicago is a Midwest town that was built on the shoulders of blue collar workers. There’s a time and place for $30 appetizers and formal attire, but burgers at the bar are rarely a bad call either.

Tonight we’re taking a trip to three of Lakeview’s less assuming hideaways for some of the best food, cheapest drinks and hardest hitting comedy we’ve had the pleasure of discovering. Here are the details.
