    It's that huge space right at Wrightwood and Clark that's been a series of failed ventures. I have a feeling it will catch on in a huge way.

    Not excited about this at all, which surprises me. I guess I prefer HC in other towns with fewer good options, like Lexington, KY. In Chicago, there are 20 other places I can go for a good beer, better food, and much easier parking.

    That's what I'm thinking — is there really an appeal to a place like HopCat in Chicago?

    I'm excited about it, but the likelihood that I will actually go to it is 0. Would have preferred a downtown venue.

    HC is overrated to begin with. But to the casual beer nerd they will just recognize the name and be all OMG I must go!!!

    That's not their business model. They like to be in trendy areas near universities.

    I've been about 3 times since it opened, always for lunch on a Sunday, never crowded.

    Not a big fan of the food at any of their locations, but there's always at least one intriguing beer on tap.

    Went a couple of weeks ago. Had the crack fries and a chicken sandwich with 3 beers. We were the only ones there for 2 hours before it got packed.

    The one in Kalamazoo was crazy packed yesterday. Went across the street to Bells and pre-gamed till my table was called. Flawless Victory!

    As are the loaded variety. They essentially franchised to all these other cities based off those.
