We live for that moment. The Bulls, Bears, Blackhawks, Fire, Cubs, or White Sox are down by one, it’s the last few minutes of the game, and everyone in the place is frozen, staring at the HDTV big screens, when the impossible happens, and we score in the last second. The place goes wild and everyone there is suddenly best friends. Next weekend, celebrate wins or make the losses a little easier to get through with a great atmosphere, filled with great food, drinks and friends both old and new.
The exposed brick and wood décor of Mickey Finn’s Brewery is a blend of classic Chicago and everything we love about Irish Pubs. Not to mention their hand crafted beers that change with the seasons, or the favorites that never go out of style. Kick back in a comfy chair and watch the game on a 120” projection HDTV and 3 flat-screen plasma screens. Enjoy their daily specials, including their NFL Sunday deals, or check out a live band on the weekends.
Lindy’s Landing is the perfect place to watch a game no matter what the time of year. Overlooking Bang’s Lake in Wauconda, enjoy watching games during the summer at their outdoor beach bar, or head indoors for a brew with the locals.
30 Flat Screen TV’s are enough for even the biggest sports fans. Timothy O’Toole’s Brew Pub in Gurnee is open 365 days a year and has an excellent selection of craft beer. If you’re feeling up for your own little competition, try the “Big Timmy Challenge”, a two half-pound burger patties with cheddar, jack, mozzarella, swiss, bacon… and so much more.
Morgan’s Bar and Grill has a fun atmosphere to celebrate a big win, or choose from one of their 15 draught beers to help ease any big losses. They have great daily specials and are in the heart of MainStreet Libertyville, which offers an array of things to do including boutiques, restaurants and unique shops.
Light the Lamp Brewery in Grayslake is the ultimate sports themed bar, even naming their home crafted beers after hockey terms like the “Hat-trick Hefevweizen”.
Go team Go! Cheer on your team next weekend in Lake County!
