Lincoln Park .. there used to be a great little bar (may still be there, I have not been in LP for atleast 10 years), half a block north of North and a couple of block west of Lake Shore. For the life of me I cannot remember the name. Good beer selection and great whiskey selection (the food was ok). Was a good deli, down by The Crate and Barrel.. it's probably long gone.
Slug: You must be talking about Corcoran's Pub on Wells. In Old Town, right near Second City. I think I stopped in there once and tipped a few brew glasses myself. My memory is a little foggy about that day though. Long day out on the town, back in the 80's.
