Sounds like you're next to the Gaslight, which is a good spot for us aging folk.
Also, did you hear about neighboring DePaul? very cool
People always seem to head south out of wrigley. I'm partial to Full Shilling up that way. Great cheap food, good drink specials, a bit older crowd. Gingerman is almost too laid back.
Come to think of it, I probably only need my ten fingers to count the number of lakeview bars I've never been in.

Rockit wrigley, and possibly Rockit river north, are both Michigan bars.
I haven't been inside the Cubby Bear in years, but I have to be honest... all of those wrigleyville bars seem basically the same to me.
I don't have a problem with Merkle's in particular, but it's not like the bros just skip over that one and move on to the next.
Anyway, if you're in Wrigleyville you have already resigned to the fact that you're going to be surrounded by douchbags. Also, you're probably hammered or well on your way to getting hammered, so it probably doesn't matter
the L&L on Clark and Belmont!
Amen to that. Hell, if I'm going to a cubs game, wrigleyville is a lot of fun. If I'm at Vine's before the first pitch, sure there will be some dbags there, but it'll be warm and sunny and I'll be in the beer garden, surrounded by people having a great time and a ton of eye candy. There are worse things (like the play of the Cubs).

L&L Tavern rules. Don't forget Jake's on Clark.
That's a couple of blocks away. Their Cuban sandwiches are pretty darn good.
Michigan State does not and will not run the 3-4 defense.
Any place that has a population that can't understand that alcohol is supposed to bring people together should be on the list.
For every 'bro' there is a tattooed hipster who is equally pretentious in the opposite way.
This list is horseshit.
Damn you're defensive.
I'm tired of these stupid lists. Call me crazy but being cliquey and labeling places as 'douchey' sounds like it belongs in middle-school.
For example, in San Francisco, many people from the Mission (think artsy/eclectic) look down on the Marina (think Lincoln Park) and vice versa. What these fools don't realize is they're not terribly dissimilar, save for their appearance. Drinking, partying, enjoying the outdoors, and chasing girls are all things they have in common.
The pretentious pricks from both groups are so god damn insecure about their own identities that they have to look down on each other.

Or it could just be that lists are kinda fun, spawn discussion and help kill the work day.
You know who else has a great cuban sandwich, and really great food and food specials in general? Trader Todd's. I'm not kidding. I think on Wednesdays they have a $5 half slab with fries, and three dollar beers. So I got two. Couldn't finish them both, but I was close.
edit: you may have to endure some karaoke.

C'mon now...San Francisco is the world capital of dooshland!
Is that the gay island themed beach bar on Sheffield just north of Diversey?
I get that one and Uncle Fatty's confused.
Pretty much. I don't think anything is looking at this as law.
Trader Todd's is the one owned by Ogre from Revenge of the Nerds right? Karaoke bar if I recall correctly
no thats uncle fattys, which used to be cherry red, which is used to be full of minors
actually not owned by Ogre, everything thinks it is, my buddy works there, not a terrible spot.
That's uncle fatty's. Trader Todd's is the gay island themed beach bar on Sheffield just north of BELMONT.
Next time you're there, snap a high resolution photo of the people in that place and share with us.
Just because they're not on the top 25 list of dooshiest places doesn't give them a pass to claim they aren't dooshy. The jury is out on that place...we'll be the ones that decide.
I also noticed he didnt hit any of the division and damen bars like 50/50
Anyone tried out the "new" Chi-Town-Tap? (Now called Racine Plumbing)
It's just north of Wrightwood on the west side of the street.
Chi-Town used to have amazing beer specials.
"Gibb is the spokesman and co-owner for Chicago bar, Trader Todd's, through which Gibb is marketing Ogre beer, which is named after his iconic character in Revenge of the Nerds."
