September 2010 Brewsletter
Mark your calendars for Saturday, September 25 from 4pm-midnight... If anyone deserves a day of honor, Arthur Guinness does. To honor its founder, Guinness and the Irish American Heritage Center will put an all-star music lineup on stage to show Chicago that every day is a lovely day for a Guinness. The Arthur Guinness Day Music Festival is a day-long celebration of music, food, fun and Arthur Guinness—brewer, entrepreneur, visionary and philanthropist. Chicago Bar Project founder and author of Historic Bars of Chicago will also be on hand to sign copies of his book, also for sale at the festival. Click here to get tickets for $10 each (normally $25). There's also the Guinness Oyster Festival this Saturday in Roscoe Village. Read more...
- Longman & Eagle: "Eat. Drink. Whiskey." Yet another reason to loiter in Logan Square.
- Sable Kitchen & Bar: hotel bar(!) with tasty tapas & more single malts than the Duke
- Tasting Room: oenophile or no, this is the place to enjoy your new favorite wines
- Snickers Bar & Grill: one of the last old-school dives in River North
- Small Bar on Division: the Small Bar that started it all, still going strong in Ukie Village
- Simone's: Pilsen will never be the same...

And you thought Skylark was cool... Simone's takes hipster to a new level in Pilsen. The interior is crafted from bowling alleys and old pinball machines, the food is the best non-Mexican fare you'll find in the 'hood, and the cocktail & beer selection is killer. And it's certified by the Green Restaurant Association. What are you waiting for? Get your arse over there for a Left Hand Milk Stout and a stuffed bleu cheese burger. Read more...
