Steve "Fuzz" Kmak has checked "play bass in a platinum metal band" off his bucket list—and now, the former Disturbed bassist is checking "sports bar owner" off his list, too. Kmak is the mastermind behind the Wicker Park sports bar Benchwarmers, which lights up eyeballs with 12 LCD screens broadcasting Bears, Hawks, Bulls, Cubs, and Sox games. During warmer months, the front of the restaurant opens garage-style, allowing fans to enjoy a breeze or hand feed people strolling past.
In the kitchen, chefs douse wings in a choice of more than 10 sauces, which run the gamut from traditional buffalo to habanero-plum. Eight different burgers—including one topped with housemade smoked pork, onion rings, and coleslaw—and vegetarian options complement the wings, as do beers by the bucket and shots of Grey Goose.
