The Brewery (3848 N. Harlem Ave.- two block s south of Irving Park Rd.) is very White Sox friendly. In fact, I think their bag game may feature Sox logos on them, not sure though. But, every Sox game is shown with usually 1/2 to 3/4 of the place with Sox fans on the stools.

Also, the Brewery is the one of the best BYOF (bring your own food) bars in Chicago and you can bring or order into the bar.

The Brewery has flat-screen tvs with satellite, ICE COLD BEER, a HUGEEE beer garden for all the human chimneys to smoke in, Slim Jims, pool tables, 'old' school' music on the juke box, lottery machine, and 'fast-serving' Hot, Polish bartenders.

Wrigley Field is usually a friendly bar to Sox fans as the White Sox usually pound the Cubs when playing there, just as they will this weekend.

SOUTH SIDE!!!

Will someone please tell me why Jay Marrioti is such a bitch? He's the biggest jerk-off in the sportswriter industry, and that's saying a lot considering it takes being a know-nothing jag bag to be a sportwriter in most cases. How does he still have a job with the Sun-Times? Seriously, Konkol...why is he still at the Sun-Times??? You must know since you work there.

Pier 5736 Chef Pete McCarthy is a HUGE White Sox fan, there are all kinds of Sox items near the bar, the game will always be on and it is a great seafood place. I think the comment on Check Please was "if you like great seafood and are a Sox fan, this place is for you"

Go Sox

If you are a transplanted Southside Sox fan living on the Northside, and you haven't been to Pier 5736, you need to get there quick for a vaccination against Cub fever. Fearless chef/owner Pete McCarthy flaunts his White Sox allegience in the middle of Cub Country.

Mark I'm guessing you don't get out often since you missed Beaumonts Bar & Grill 2020 N Halsted. While they're not obviously a White Sox Bar since they do have both Sox & that other teams flags up in front they are nevertheless A WHITE SOX BAR. Any time both teams are playing at the same time you'll find the SOX games on the big screens and the other teams games on the little tv's in the corners
Go SOX!

Edgewater Inn on Ashland,
All sox all the time

Thanks for this blog posting...now I know where to avoid!

So, uh... you were saying?

Thanks for keeping the Sox bars classy Oskee...

This is actually news?

Pier 5736 is the best place for White Sox fans on the northside. Chef and owner Peter McCarthy proudly displays his undying love for the team through his decor and constant promotion. Peter bravely withstands the criticism he gets from his mainly northside, Cub-loving cliental. For great food and to catch the latest game go to the Pier. It is a haven for White Sox fans!!!

Pier 5736 is the best!!! Peter Mc---something is a die hard sox fan! this restarant is full of sox posters and signs, along with the sammy sosa bobble head with a cork taped to his bat...this place has great sea food and a great place for white sox fans to go to enjoy themselves. Pier 5736 rocks!!!!
