Bar #22: Sunnyside Tap

4410 N. Western Ave.

11:00pm, Wednesday, July 27

Price of Old Style: $2.50 bottles

See: Sportsmans Lounge.

Once again, we were the only people in the bar… The bar is run by a couple in their seventies or eighties, and they were just hanging out at the end of the bar, watching TV on an old 20 inch tube. The old woman got us our beers – at least they had Old Style – and went back to the end of the bar, not really in the mood for conversation. How do these places stay open? I couldn’t help but laugh at the old 80’s beer posters on the wall, and they even had a Spuds McKenzie poster behind the bar! The only redeeming thing about Sunnyside was the old school jukebox towards the front…don’t see those much anymore.
