Thanks to The Chicago Reader for the great article: “Four Restaurants and Bars to Try This Weekend in Chicago”
We’re certainly gearing up for Game 2 tonight and we agree, when the Chicago Blackhawks are on the road we’re still one of the hottest places in town to watch the game!
From Jeffy Mai of The Chicago Eater:
No, the Blackhawks won’t be playing at home on Saturday night but that doesn’t mean you can’t head down to the Near West Side to cheer them on. The Ogden, located blocks away from the United Center, is a “chef-driven sports bar” and bound to be one of the hottest places to watch the action. As one of the official Blackhawks bars, there’ll be a lively game day atmosphere, a sea of red jerseys and even the sounds of Chelsea Dagger and goal horns to get you pumped up. The menu contains the usual array of bar food with highlights including their famous animal fries topped with pulled pork, cheese curds, giardiniera and a sunny side up egg, as well as some juicy black angus burgers. The beer list is also surprisingly impressive, boasting more than 50 different types of craft brews in bottles, cans or on tap. If you can’t be in Tampa for the game, this isn’t a bad consolation. The Ogden: 1659 W. Ogden Ave., 312-226-1888. —Jeffy Mai; photo by The Ogden.
