    Living in wheaton and don't spend much time in the city. I'm thinking about getting some friends into the city to catch the games on Thursday and Friday. What are some places you were suggest for a group that wants good basketball coverage as well as a nice selection of craft beer?

    Thanks in advance

    World of Beer in Naperville actually isn't that bad an option, but I'd like to switch it up.

    Fatpour has many many TVs and quite a draft list

    Yeah, Fatpour has around 50 taps and while some of those are Bud and the standard imports (the Guinness/Harps of the world) there's still like 35-40 taps of craft and more interesting imports. And tons of TVs.

    I'd add Haymarket to the list, they have a pretty decent number of TVs and good guest drafts in addition to their own brews (which are well worth drinking, I rarely get guest drafts there), and if you're coming in from Wheaton you could take the train and walk to Haymarket from the train station easily.

    New place opened near Milwaukee/North/Damen called High Noon Saloon that had Pipeworks Chipotle Smoked Porter on draft when they opened last week and had plenty of TVs. In that area Piece also has a fair number of TVs, good if you park yourself at the bar.

    Fatpour is a very solid choice. Was there Monday and they had a solid craft list then
