Okay, so I've only lived in Chicago a short time, and have been to some great, great bars (Hopleaf, obviously, Skylark, Small Bar, etc.), but I want to find some places to have fun. I need a really great place to watch games (of all sorts), a place with amazing casual/pub food, a place that has cool specials and creative, fun stuff like movies, or weird contests; but still has a solid beer selection and good prices.
Anyone have some favorite places like this? They're a bit hard to find, since what makes places like these so great is the fact that they really surprise you by being so entertaining.
