Guthries Tavern: Game On


Amongst the charming ivy-covered homes of Wrigleyville lies a hidden gem. An unassuming little bar with a secret, Guthries Tavern is the place to go for some friendly competition. At first glance it may seem like any cozy, laid-back neighborhood spot, but its pride and joy is located on a back wall, next to the ladies room: a bookshelf crammed full with over 50 different board games that you’re free to play as long as you like. Drop by on your next night out with friends and begin with a round of beers. They’ve got more than a dozen on draft, including seasonal specials from nearby Spiteful Brewing. Then it’s time for a very difficult decision: what is your game for the evening? You’ll find everything from Candyland and Sorry! to Trivial Pursuit and Clue, so grab a childhood favorite or try something new as you sip your suds and enjoy an evening of trash-talking and high-fiving with every roll of the dice. Brain games like Risk will have you sinking deeper into your chair as you devise a strategy to take over the world, but physical challenges like Jenga always bring the drama, especially when the wooden tower finally collapses with a loud crash onto your table. To complete your night, grab a delivery menu from the tin at the bar. You and your friends can smile smugly knowing that soon your piping hot pizza or spicy tacos will make you the envy of the place.
