Keep that as a mental note if you need to stock up before the Bears' game and didn't plan ahead on Saturday. Dominick's and Jewel on Weber Rd. have full booze depts. and sell at 7:30am!

I'll be in Texas this weekend and won't be back until late Sunday night. I'm pretty open the rest of the week, though.

rdwj, do you belong to the Urban Knaves of Grain? If so, are you going to the monthly meeting tomorrow evening?

I am not a member. I've considered joining, but I have classes on either Wed or Thurs most of the year. I've actually looked at BOSS too.

After my move to Oak Forest becomes permanent, I plan to seriously look into joining them. Their meetings seem to be random at either member's homes or area brewpubs/beer bars.

The burbs pretty much suck for good brew bars.

If you make it into the city, The Hop Leaf and Map Rooom are musts.
If you want a killer burger and some great brew (along with plenty of heavy metal): Kuma's Corner.
My little secret is Small Bar in Logan Square
I live walking distance to Kuma's and Small Bar.


www.hopleaf.com
www.maproom.com
www.kumas-corner.com - beer list on the website is pretty outdated.
