After years of picking restaurants in a four-block radius of my Wicker Park home — wait, no, that’s a lie: one time I picked Belly Shack, one L stop away from me — I am finally expanding my pick perimeter. It doesn’t mean I’m not being lazy again: I’m seeing the Afghan Whigs at the Metro on Friday night so I made the oh-so-convenient decision to pick something around there.

“Oh no, these guys will kill me when I pick something in Wrigleyville,” I thought. But it wasn’t until I referred to the RC historical list that I found out, you guys love Wrigleyville! Every single place I kept looking up has been picked before! From Rockit Burger to Pick Me Up Cafe, from Cozy Noodles to (one-time Best of Year) Dimo’s, even newcomer Lowcountry has already been host to RC before. So I went with another repeat, but one where you guys went to way back in 2004, way before they opened their own brewery — “the 1st certified organic brewery in Illinois.”

Bonus: the Cubs are out of town all week so there will be plenty of parking.

Please join me at Uncommon Ground (and who knows, at the Metro for Afghan Whigs featuring Har Mar Superstar, afterwards?) this Friday.

Please RSVP by Thursday at 6:30pm.
