    A group of 7 guys are making our yearly trip to a Cubs game soon and are stumped as to where to eat after the game.
    Last year, we hit up Smoque BBQ and loved it. Another year it was Carson's for ribs.
    We have not done pizza yet, but aren't sure we want to have to pick a place between Uno (which all of us have been to), Geno's, Giordano's, etc., so we have kind of ruled that out.
    Kumas Korner is my first choice, but folks in my group think the wait will be too long.
    Any great suggestions for a landmark kind of a place with good eats for a bunch of crocked Cubs fans?

    If we help, will you promise not to YELL AT US or blow us up?

    While you're waiting on a table, walk down to the martini bar down the street. When you're table's ready, they'll call the bar.

    If you decide to do pizza, I like Lou Malnati's.

    Kuma's is the baddest, and you can always walk two blocks down Belmont and hang out at Family Tattoo while you wait.

    Brewpub with great New Haven style pizza & the MLB package:


    Twin Anchors is a good choice too.

    If you like to grill, you might like this place:


    Kind of touristy & it can get crowded. My dad who's always grilled on a Weber was dying to try this place out when he was in town. There was a long wait, but $20.00 got us a table in about two minutes.

    If you're willing to spend a couple of bucks, check out this place:


    Gastropub type of a place. Pork is king here & they've got a great beer list.

    For great sandwiches & a fantastic beer list, try the Wicker Park location of this joint:

    Dick's Last Resort was fun when I went there. Harry Carey's is okay. Saw Ryne Sandberg when I ate there.

    There was this kick-ass pizza joint in Evanston, right by Northwestern, about 10-15 years ago I used to go to, but I can't remember what it was called or whether it's still open or not.

    I know that's remarkably helpful.

    Mrs. Bubbler and I went to a pretty good Thai joint just down the street from Giordano's on Rush Street last November. It was in the basement of a building. Again ... helpful, I know.
