Chicago Style: Hot Dogs! Hot Dogs! Beer Anyone?

Chicago Style is part of the Round The Atlantic Trip Report.

Step 1: Check into hotel.

Step 2: Complain about no upgrade.

Step 3: Take photos of hotel room for blog.

That’s where most blogs end. Not TPOL. I have to document everything. Why? Because one day I will be stuck at home with nothing to do and nowhere to go. Sound familiar? In this installment, I checked out of the Waldorf Chicago and into the Tremont Chicago. With Step 2 and 3 out of the way, it was time to play a variation of my favorite pastime in Hong Kong (see How to Explore Hong Kong On Foot: The 7-Eleven Drinking Game). Instead of looking for a 7-Eleven, I looked for the nearest pub and let my liver lead the way.

Pippin’s Tavern

It’s not Scottie’s but Pippin’s is a great place to start a day of Chicago exploration (see Guns & Butter: Chicago Travel Guide (Baseball, Hot Dogs, Pizza, Beer Edition)). a sign on a building

Where can I eat after this beer?

TPOL’s TIP: Pippin’s Tavern is located at 806 N Rush St, Chicago, IL 60611.

Downtown Dogs

When hunger struck, I went next door to Downtown Dogs, another great choice.

I love Chicago.


Bloggers: stop taking photos of the toilet. Travelers: stop reading blogs (see Giordano’s Pizza Chicago: Trust Your Taste Buds, Not Your Friends). Everyone: go explore.
