Seven-time Grammy-winner Kirk Franklin tickles ears with contagiously catchy beats and gospel-chorus fireworks while lifting up listeners with messages of hope. Franklin's The Fearless Tour mixes material from his new album, Hello Fear, with classic songs from his decade-spanning career, bringing his inspirational music to lift up those who have recently discovered their hearts are not shaped like valentine cards. Gospel-belting aces Isaac Carree, Deon Kipping, and Jason Nelson will enliven proceedings with their own inspirational melodies, and BET Sunday Best winner Amber Bullock will showcase her up-and-coming pipes with edifying aplomb. The 10,000-seat House of Hope provides ample space for high-energy tunes to soar without becoming muddled or working napping bats into a frenzy.

The building that houses Argus Brewery was once a horse stable. But not just any horse stable—the distribution stables of Chicago’s historic Joseph E. Schlitz, of Schlitz beer fame, where the Schlitz horse teams and carriages resided in the early 1900s. Today, two large terra-cotta horse heads on the building’s parapet pay homage to the building’s origins. Inside, instead of horses, there’s craft beer created by father and son and three-legged-race partners Bob and Patrick Jensen, who have worked tirelessly to perfect their sudsy creations. Along with hard work, they bring their South Side pride and attitude to making each premium craft beer, which they feel is reflected in the unique flavor, depth, and unapologetic bravado of each brew.

The nondescript brick building on a nondescript Hyde Park street corner would be easy to overlook, were it not for the howling blues tunes booming out from within. Past the front hall plastered with press mentions and award clippings, a boisterous crowd of well-dressed locals and wide-eyed college students packs the intimate, rectangular space. They lounge on upholstered vinyl chairs at the floodlit bar, sipping stiff drinks and tapping their feet to the music. Up on the stage stands the source of the infectious melodies—Chicago blues legends like the Mighty World Band and Shorty Mack. The musicians often call for audience participation, when the lively guests unhesitatingly raise their voices to sing along with soulful tunes that earned the joint accolades from the likes of Fodor's and The Travel Channel.

Like any pub found in its namesake counties, Cork & Kerry boasts an interior of dark, shiny wood paneling and exposed brick accented by stained glass windows. Unlike many of those pubs, however, the venue sprawls across 6,000 square feet, its crowning jewel a multi-level beer garden. In summer, the entire garden provides a sunny spot to enjoy one of the 20 beers on tap, a selection anchored by the constant presence of Guinness and Harp. Come winter, a portion of the patio boasts enclosed walls and climate control so that guests can still enjoy Chicago’s sunny, if snowier, vistas.
