FC1 Western Ave. Stop 23: To the pubs for a pint!

As I said, they look unfamilar when there aren't thousands of drunk people on the street for the parade. But it is possible to find a friendly place for a pint no matter what day it is. This place had some charity event, either for $15 or $50 all-you-can-eat-and-drink for the next two hours. (Couldn't really understand the South Side Irish accent.) That sounded like trouble.

So this place was more like it. And at $7 for two pints of well-poured stout, it could have proved trouble as well...

some great photos and glad that you stopped in to check out some of the businesses. Of course, being in a car you were able to see more of the street in less time but you probably missed some of the quirks and easyto miss spots. Many years ago, New City had a reporter walk the entire street, starting on the southside and going all the way up to Evanston. The writing sucked in that article but the concept was very cool. Maybe you should get some more destination suggestions and explore them the same way. I am sure there are many areas that are diverse and different as you walk along and are not well represented in chicago guides. My suggestion is Lake Street from downtown all they way to Oak Park.

For the record the two pints were purchases and drank at Duffy’s, not Keegan’s Pub. Keegan’s was like a bad funeral. No music or ambiance, just old people sitting around quietly chatting.

.... and the problem with that???? After all, a bad Irish funeral makes lots of money for Pheasant Run - "Flanagan's Wake"
at Pheasant Run is one of the longest-running shows in Chicago theater history.
