Steve ‘Pudgy’ D.Steve ‘Pudgy’ De Rose: This is more known {although still obscure} as a cocktail bar. But the beers on offer are solid. I classify this as a good 'first date' venue.

Steve ‘Pudgy’ D.Steve ‘Pudgy’ De Rose: Dim, intriguing pub with below-average craftbeer pricing, liquor take-outs, tasty food, free wi-fi, & (if you're lucky) nudie bar dancers between shifts from the Pink Monkey Club next door.

Steve ‘Pudgy’ D.Steve ‘Pudgy’ De Rose: The ‘cheezborger’ gets incessant airplay to this day; but it has evolved to good craftbeers on offer, & its house drafts are a superb value for the money. And it will turn on the soccer game.

Steve ‘Pudgy’ D.Steve ‘Pudgy’ De Rose: Here's a brewery which still isn't on most beer maps. Beers are solidly to style. UP North Line trains are two blocks west. If this was 1962, North Shore Line electric trains would get you here.
