North End

3733 N. Halsted


A friend of mine asked me to join him at the North End to watch some Sunday football. He described the joint as being "all gay and divey--like me!" Being neither (and not a football fan), it took a bit of convincing, but when he mentioned a free buffet I was in. There's food every Sunday year-round, but from noon to five during football season the bar steps things up with a hearty spread of entrees like pasta, brats, Italian beef, and ham. Sundays also include a free darts tournament, free pool tables, and trivia games with prizes like theater tickets and restaurant gift certificates. And when the Bears and the Packers are both playing, never fear--the games are split among the bar's 14 screens. --Megan Roberts
