Where would Nelson Algren drink?

Champ | Jan 27, 200409:35 AM

Before I begin, I want to thank all of the Chicago hounds for their responses to my post below. It certainly helps for easier vacation planning.

And now on to the main question: if Nelson Algren were alive and living in Chicago today, where would he do his drinking? Any suggestions for taverns where I'd find Frankie Machine or Bruno Biceps? My wife detests dive bars, but I'm hoping to sneak away for a few cold ones while we're in Chicago. We'll be staying downtown, but I am willing to travel by the el or by bus.

Thanks in advance...
