This is your typical neighborhood dive bar. There isnít really anything special about it but it attracts a nice crowd of students. Selection is pretty mediocre. They usually have about 10 beers or so on tap and none of them are of high quality. Itís a shame that they never seem to have any Goose Island on tap, because that would be pretty good bang for your buck. A pitcher of a lower quality beer will run you something like $9, which is pretty fair I guess. Unfortunately they only take cash here, which I find pretty disappointing as someone who prefers to use plastic. Service here seems pretty attentive. I havenít tried the food, but it looks like your typical bar food, which isnít necessarily a bad thing at 1 AM when nothing else in the area is open.

A dive bar near the University of Chicago campus in Hyde Park. They have your average selection of beers on tap with some extras in bottle. It seems like the going rate for a bottle of any beer is 4.50. The food is better than average but is still your typical bar food.
