The Run Down

Getting through a Chicago winter often means barricading yourself inside, hiding under the covers, and reemerging in a few months when the city starts to thaw. For a lot of us, a few weekends of that can make home feel more like a cage. So for this guide, we’re going to do our best to get out of the house while still enjoying the relaxed comforts of home. We’re off to a place where beer, coffee, and Sunday football intersect. We then warm up with a plate of pasta at a neighborhood Italian supper club in Bucktown. Here are the details.

Some of the city guides on Nande are free. Others, like this one, are for members only.
