Transcribed from notes dated Su, 15 Aug 2010.

Forget CAPT Morgan's "Calling All CAPTs" campaign - I am now officially CAPT Clueless, having completely glossed over this place on Friday and only noticed it inadvertently as the bus made the wide right turn onto Midvale off of University on my return trip to Old CHI.

If Iron Hill (Wlimington, DE) was their location on steroids, this was The Dane on growth hormones! F**ksake, but this was one big dog. Aligned at an angle to the corner of Price Place, the entry had a short vestibule which opened onto the m.d.s. straight ahead, but still aligned to the corner.

The best way to describe the interior would be to think of it as a baseball diamond with the entry/mds as Home Plate. On the exterior, patio seating ran down the 1st and 3rd base sides. On the interior, the 3rd base side was lined with booths, extending around to left field, all along the windows. On the extent of the left field patio was a blue-felt pool table (!). The restaurant area was along 1st base side with booths in front of the windows and standard tables and chairs in the center. The lavs were behind the bar (call it Pitcher's Mound)/

Beer: Eleven (11) dedicated Great Dane taps, plus Miller Lite, Strongbow and Emerald Isle Stout on N2 .

Service: Fantastic! Friendly, forthcoming, unobtrusive, plus bring your best Portugese.

Bottom Line: A bit too upscale for yours truly, but still worth visiting.
