Live Music bar for couples in 30s/40s

by dldkag


We have 4 couples coming into town next month and we'd like to find a bar that has live music and is age appropriate. Music can range from rock covers to blues to top 40, but it's more important that it's fun and upbeat. A good beer selection would be a major plus.

We're staying downtown, so would prefer the venue be in that area. Thanks in advance for any suggestions.

Try Howl at the Moon:

It's a dueling piano bar where they do covers of any song that a member of the audience suggests. It's a good time and I always suggest that any of my colleagues heading to Chicago check it out!

You could try Pops for Champagne - it's on N. State Street, just a short distance north of the Chicago River. They feature live jazz/pop music in a nice atmosphere.

As the name suggest, it's more of a champagne/wine bar than a beer place, but they have a good selection of bottled beers and some Belgian brews on tap.

(Just a note about beer - you probably won't go wrong in Chicago getting "Goose Island" beers - they are an excellent small brewery located in the city.)

I agree with Chet - Pops is one of my favorite bars in Chicago. It's very age appropriate, and they have a huge drink selection along with some terrific small plates/desserts. From what I remember, they also have a good happy hour. Have fun!

The House of Blues is a Chicago institution.......we stayed there a few years ago, and the music & vibe were great. Whats best- its great for your age-group.Not sure what that is exactly- but its not a teenage venue.
Dress is casual.

Travel Tips for Chicago

Hold the ketchup.....

by jmhenry1123

A proper Chicago style hot dog is a Vienna Beef hot dog served in a poppy seed bun with green relish, onions, sport pepers, a tomato slice, a pickle spear, yellow mustard with a dash of celery salt. NO KETCHUP. Ask for it and you will get a dirty look.

Ketchup is of course permissable on french fries.

Walk up and down Michigan...

by dzni

Walk up and down Michigan Avenue (primarily between the Wrigley Building [by the bridge over the Chicago River] and Lake Shore Drive [just past the Hancock Building]). This is what's called the Magnificent Mile, which is just a line of shops, many high-end, and places to eat (but mainly shops). The best time to be here is Christmas, though, with the holiday rush! Being in Chicago at Christmastime, the day after Thanksgiving. Everything on Michigan Ave. is lit up, there are people everywhere, shopping for their Christmas gifts. Marshall Field's has the traditional Christmas window displays, and if you're lucky enough to be there on a cold, snowy December (or November) day, it just completes the whole Christmasy feeling. Ah, but I can't stop there... get a hot espresso drink or some hot chocolate, and mmmmmmm.... good times. But, there's more... an outdoor ice-skating rink if it's cold enough, musicians on the street, and the German Christmas market - Christkindlmarket (pictured here).

What does this mean?

This sign, in Latin, is on a house outside Wrigley Field. I have no idea what it means. In fact, I'm stumped. If you can email me with the answer, I'll give eternal gratification. Thanks!

***Here's the answer, from VTer Itsfunhavingfun. Thanks Kevin!!!***

EAMUS CATULI means "Let's go Cubs!" AC026097 stands for Anno Catuli (Year of the Cubs). The numbers are how many years since they won their division, the National League Pennant and the World Series.

Ethnic Neighborhoods: German

by dlandt

Also known as "my neighborhood", Lincoln Square (not to be confused with Lincoln Park, Lincoln Town, Lincoln Center, Lincon Village, Lincolnwood, or the City of Lincoln) has the rest of what was once a very heavily German neighborhood. There seems to be some concentrated effort to restore or preserve its character and certain places are fixtures. You can visit an apotheke, buy German food or imported goods, as well as shop in stores featuring German eyeglasses or shoes. In autumn, it is common for people to set up a portable stereo and waltz by the fountain dressed in formal wear. This is also where we celebrate Oktoberfest. I'm the one pointing at the camera.

Located near the Cook County Administrative Building at 69 W. Washington St., the playful image of Joan Miro's MIRO'S CHICAGO is derived from the artist's memories of his homeland in Catalonia Spain. Using his unique visual symbolism, Miro envisions the mystical presence of an earth deity, both cosmic and worldly.
