Glad to hear you got to sample some good beer! Never been to Twisted Spoke myself, but they are supposed to have a great selection. Wildfire is a pretty good chain of upscale steakhouses; I have one near work. After the GI IPA, Old Style would seem pretty weak!

Wildfire rocks. There's one close to my house and we go there whenever we're feeling semi-snazzy.

I'll be back in Chicago (North Side) Friday night through Tuesday morning.... I've given up on trying to get Bears tickets and even Cubs tickets are going for $100 each..... Where's a good place to watch the Bears whoop up on the Cowboys?

Everywhere, to put it bluntly. We're divided on Cubs / Sox, but we're all Bears fans.
