NYC Chowhound visiting Chi: Best Deep-Dish Pizza?

ouch haha!

Hey, I'm coming to Chicago this Friday, and stumbling upon this 4 year old thread is just what I needed! Going to have to visit Uno or Due this Friday afternoon.

Bars to hit after a show at Subterranean

Thank you both - doesn't necessarily have to be a dive, just something on the casual side while being free of popped collars and such.

Bars to hit after a show at Subterranean

Hi, I'll be visiting your fine city this coming weekend with my wife. We're going to see a band at Subterranean and I'm looking for some suggestions on bars after the show. (Saturday night)

I'm more of the dive bar type, but am open to other bars/lounges. My wife is much the same, though she'd probably prefer the dive bar type of crowd combined with a "cool" setting. I'm really trying to steer clear of the pretty boy/girl crowd, we don't do clubs, but we are open to any 'decent' bar in the wicker park / bucktown area. We won't be driving, we'll likely take a cab to the area in the afternoon (from downtown, river north area) to eat and have a couple beers before hitting Subt - so, we'll be hoofing it, preferrably, unless the types of places I'm looking for are more suited for a cab ride.

What I mean by 'decent' above is a bar that's not filled with the trendy, 'I'm so hot I can hardly stand it' crowd.. A few here and there is fine, makes for good talk over a beer. My 'going out' attire consists of jeans and a tshirt, though my wife likes to make herself look a little more presentable than I do.

Looking for suggestions on bars that we can walk to in the area! Thanks in advance.
