  • Schubas Tavern
    Over the course of its history, the brick tied house at the corner of Belmont and Southport has hosted tenants that helped shape Chicago’s personality. Originally built as a tap room by the Joseph Schlitz Brewing Company in 1903, the homey corner bar would later transform into Schubas Tavern, one of t he North Side’s preeminent music clubs. Nestled right next door, the Harmony Grill flaunts both its history and proximity to musical derring-do. As diners gather around tables and booths lit by intimate glass-petal hanging lamps, stained glass windows and ornate molding compete for eyes’ attention with the murals, paintings, and photographs of musicians that cover the walls. In the kitchen, chefs preside over design menus brimming with contemporary, regional American cuisine featuring ingredients sourced from local and regional producers. Their tactics reflect this obsession with freshness; they make all soups, sauces, breads, and desserts in-house daily, ensuring that ingredients remain unspoiled and naïve enough to go into the pot willingly. All of this attention to culinary detail pays off at lunch and dinner, of course. Then, chefs accent home-style mac 'n' cheese with combinations of more than 30 toppings, and build beef or veggie burgers, traditional Cuban sandwiches, and shrimp po' boys. They also specialize in brunch, crafting sweet seasonal pancakes, Mexican-inspired egg dishes, and French toast from scratch each weekend. Barkeeps also get a chance to shine, pouring a dozen draft beers—including imports as well as local brews—and local rye whiskeys and vodka.

  • Drag City
    Five Things to Know About Drag City At first, there was “College Rock,” the catch-all term for not-quite-ready-for-Top-40 acts such as R.E.M., 10,000 Maniacs, or The Cure, who were adored by college kids before anyone else. Then came “Alternative Rock,” the blanket term for Brit pop, grunge, industrial, and anything else that wasn’t Aerosmith or Milli Vanilli. But one could argue (as music nerds do) that “Indie Rock”—that term reserved to define music’s more obtuse, uncommercial, and, well, independent offerings—came to be thanks to Chicago’s scrappy, venerable, and just plain smart record label Drag City. Here’s some facts to back that up (and records you should own). Their first release was what your mom would call “different.” Columbia Records debuted with the Metropolitan Opera. Motown’s first single was Smokey Robinson and the Miracles. As for Drag City? Royal Trux: two unrepentant junkies chafing your earlobes with sloppy, noisy avant-garbage in a year (1990) when Wilson Phillips had the #1 song of the year. They gave you Pavement. The first “Summer Babe” 7”, the Perfect Sound Forever and Demolition Plot J-7 EPs, and the Westing (By Musket and Sextant) compilation made it from Stephen Malkmus’s 4-track to your ears thanks to Drag City’s prescient tastes. Also: if you caught Pavement’s 2010 Pitchfork reunion, that was Drag City’s Rian Murphy introducing the band in the spirit of Tony Clifton They made the harp a thing again: Remember when nobody played the harp or hung out with harp players, and then Drag City released Joanna Newsom’s The Milk-Eyed Mender and everybody was all like, “I want a harp! I want to marry Andy Samberg?” Thanks, Drag City. They raised the dead OK, that’s a fib. But they did reissue the hard-to-find demos of the Detroit protopunk band Death. Plus, albums by acts such as Bonnie 'Prince' Billy and Bill Callahan of Smog are known to make listeners feel like they just woke up from being buried alive. They know what’s funny. It takes some gall and guts to release comedy albums from standups as divisive as Andy Kaufman, darling as Fred Armisen, and derelict as Neil Hamburger
