Roscoe Village

The Witching Hour comes early this Friday at Riverview Tavern, 1958 W Roscoe. At 7 p.m.

It's heating up again (as it should in August), and what better way to cool down than with a nice cold beer. You don't want just any beer, though.

Nothing tastes better on a hot summer day than a nice cold beer, especially when it's a nice cold CRAFT beer!

There are a lot of things that happen to one during Chicago Craft Beer Week. Feelings of fatigue, shame, gluttony, gratitude and excitement all mold into one.

“Ooh let’s get ice cream!” I said on the drive back to Chicago after a boozy, soft-sugar-cookie-filled Memorial Day weekend.

When I first moved to Roscoe Village from Lakeview, I was nervous. I left behind my favorite watering hole, my favorite sushi joint and, most importantly, my favorite brunch spot.
