    All I see is a lack of Skyride and a lack of Beef and Brandy

    At least 14 I know I've been to for sure. That Cactus place fucking blows I know bar happenings over there are kind of slim but there has to be something better. Skyride is close enough that they should've just used that for the LaSalle blue line stop.

    Bar on Buena being listed for Wilson is a joke. My buddy lived across the street from there, no way in hell are you not getting off at Sheridan if you're going there.

    (Basically, never get off at Wilson)

    Retarded Ox I wish Quaye would hug me.

    At quick glance, been to around 20 or so, back in the day Cactus Club ruled and I was a bouncer that entitled me to free booze and food whenever I went there or the one on Rush street on non-working days. That pretty much got me thru my year of living in Old Town

    I was in Cactus for the first time in years in December. It's dead now. I think their big night is Saturday where they have to put a metal detector in the front.

    Yeah it had died when I was still down there. Before the big remodel they didn't have to open on weekends, they did enough business to be closed. Then they opened it up on the weekends trying to cater to the South Loop residents and that reach went a little too far south :bolt:

    Larsen's in Joliet really screwed their own pooch with a nice-yet-soul-crushing remodel that totally killed the fuck-all vibe of the place

    Still, you'd think even the most crackerist hipstery asshole would include the orange line Halsted stop. Maybe they couldn't decide between Maria's and Skylark.

    Yeah they could go at least far down as that, I can see why they wouldn't want to put most of the south side of the Red Line though. What are you going to put on 47th and on... "maybe you'll find a bar in this gang infested area of poverty?"

    why does The Owl come before Revolution on the blue line segment?

    Are they talking about the actual brewery and not the brewpub near Milwaukee and California?

    Map blows.

    That is what I thought as well but it's not the closest bar to each stop it's "what we think is the best bar close to that stop"

    Blue Line is a way better bar that Big Star. Fuck; Pontiac Cafe was a better bar than Big Star.
