Rest assured, my friend. . .


The Horseshoe will reopen soon. At least, that’s the word on the street.

What, you ask, is the Horseshoe? Wait – you seriously don’t know? Well, it’s only one of the coolest bars in Chicago, located on Lincoln Avenue just north of Irving, and they’ve only got the greatest, tastiest, most deliciously awesome Sunday brunch on the planet. That’s right, they do. No, seriously, they do.

And what, you ask, do they have at this Sunday brunch? Wait, you – what? You need to get with the program, dude. They’ve got brisket – smoked for 14 hours. Pulled pork. Hash. Mac and cheese. Grit cakes. Baked beans. Smoked chicken. Flap jacks. And, you know, a bunch of other stuff, too. Want eggs? Bacon? Sausage? Biscuits and gravy? They’ve got you covered. Covered, dude. And did I mention the mac and cheese?

The point is that you need to go. When they reopen, that is. Seriously, you need to go. So set aside fifteen bucks (I admit it, dude, it’s a bit of a splurge) and prepare yourself.

But wait, you shout, what about the bluegrass?! Oh, so you have heard of this place. Why did you act like you hadn’t? Well, I almost forgot. The coolest thing about this Sunday brunch, aside from the thing about it being the greatest, tastiest, most deliciously awesome one on the planet, is that it’s a bluegrass brunch. While you eat, you get to listen to a real live bluegrass band. And they’re good, dude! And if you’re anything like me, that makes you happy! And if your daughter’s anything like mine, she likes it!

So where, you ask, can you find more information? Well, good question. I don’t know, dude. They’ve got a MySpace page, I can tell you that. The owner also owns the bike shop next door. Stop in sometime, act like you’re shopping for a bike, and hound him about reopening the Horseshoe. Tell him you need some brisket – stat! And some mac and cheese, dude. You need some of that, too.

Wait – come to think of it, so do I.

    I’ve liked most of the music, big fan of Fulton County Line. The BBQ is good, not the best around. The bar as a whole is ok, while I know everyone has their opinions, it’s not a favorite of mine outside of the band that’s on stage.
