There’s nothing objective about this post.
I just happened to have a very, very nice time at Howells + Hood – hanging out on the capacious bar terrace at the base of The Tribune building on a warm Spring evening, slurping craft beers carefully selected from a menu boasting the largest selection of draft beers in Chicago (114 unique local and global varieties) and generally relaxing with friends I hadn’t seen for ages, after getting burnt walking around Chicago this afternoon in the sunshine (from Navy Pier to Ohio Street Beach along Lake Shore, past the volleyballers at Oak Street Beach, to North Michigan Avenue, The Tilt at Hancock Tower and back down to Du Sable Bridge over the Chicago River). Ahhhhhh. I love this city.
And did I mention tasty beer?
Well I did say there was nothing objective about this post. But if you’re in Chicago and you’re thirsty and you’re passing The Tribune, check out Howells & Hood. It’d be foolish not to.
