Find Your World Cup HQ

wcbrazil.jpgI don't go to bars. I don't drink alcohol. But every four years, I darken the doors of a bar to watch the World Cup. It's fun. I don't know always know what's happening onscreen, but it's still worth the trip. People fill up bars at unreasonable hours for early morning drinking, weird breakfast specials and moments of intense staring (and screaming) at TV screens. Because some bars are better than others, I turned to my local friendly soccer guru for some of his picks. Plan wisely.

Some people are more comfortable in a no-frills place, and others want the kind of joint that has a TV mounted on every flat surface. I've taken the liberty of creating a guide for every soccer fan in your group of a good place to watch the game followed by recommended post-game eats within walking distance (in parentheses), if you can't hack bar food every day:

-Cleo's, 1935 W. Chicago
(Roots Pizza, or El Taco Veloz)

-Crew, 4804 N. Broadway
(Tank Noodle)

-The Globe , 1934 W. Irving Park
(Cho Sun Ok, Mrs. Murphy and Sons)

-A.J. Hudson's, 3801 N. Ashland
(The Roost)

-Sedgwick's, 1935 N. Sedgwick
(Chicago Pizza Oven and Grinder, Twin Anchors, or Old Town Social)

-Small Bar, 2049 W. Division
(Prasino, Leghorn)

Autism Finds A New Solution in Local Urban Garden

By Brandy Gonsoulin

Developmental disabilities present obvious social and economic challenges, but solutions to problems are sometimes surprisingly found in the most unexpected places -- like on a small urban farm in the middle of Chicago.
