GAME DAY is just around the corner! It’s time to make some serious decisions. Starting with: where to go??? This isn’t “just another game,” so coming up with a game day plan in advance is an absolute necessity. Our cheesey neighbors to the north don’t have nearly the options we do in terms of limitless fanscape destinations. So, Chicagoans, you can’t stay in and hibernate come game day! We’ve got to go out and band together in celebration of our VICTORY!!! Here are the best bars to Bear down in, located within a short bear crawl from each of PPM’s buildings in Lakeview, Lincoln Park, and the Gold Coast. Remember to be safe and have fun!!!
LAKEVIEW PICK: VINES ON CLARK
3554 N. Clark St.
Chicago, IL 60657
You’ve got to get your hide over to Vines on Clark. Not only do they have a fantastic bear loving atmosphere, they’re offering ridiculous food and drink specials! You know, when the Chicago Bears first started playing in Chicago, they played at Wrigley Field, so what better way to celebrate than in Wrigleyville?!

The Public House just opened this past weekend, so this is the perfect time to check it out!
