President's Day Chicago Pub Crawl

With the almost unlimited options for fun on President's Day (ahem...), might we suggest a pub crawls through some of the Loop's best bars?

Note: This is a do-it-yourself crawl with ten pubs listed here for completeness, which is probably more than anyone but only the heartiest of pub crawlers can handle, so feel free to customize each pub crawl to your abilities and tastes. Also, pubs on this crawl are located beyond walking distance and, because driving and taking cabs are out of the question, the use of Chicago Trolley is highly recommended, especially because you can bring your own beer! If you buy a copy of our bookHistoric Bars of Chicago ($12), you can get a $45 coupon that is more than 10% off for most rentals.
