Ok

After careful deliberation. This place has been decided as the watering hole of choice by us (well, I googled it, and Another Limey said “Yeah, whatever”)



So if you’re in Chicago for the game and fancy a beverage or 2 afterwards.

We’ll see you there.





Also, commemorative t-shirts are being made by this website* shirts of the USA tour.





Any problems or suggestions. Gimme a PM.

Yeah, I'll second that make sure there are loads of photos of the festivities. Sorry I could'nt make it however I thought $1000 for a freindly was a little much, which is what it would have cost me with flight, hotel, ticket, spending money etc. Hope those that go have fun.

I had a few beers there last weekend when some friends from home came over. Cool place though could get very crowded if there is 1000's of you there after the game.

Default England v USA - For those in NE Ohio

Many of us cannot make the trip to Chicago that weekend so here in our area we're getting together to watch the match and have a pint....play a bit of pool and darts.

Sorry guys, I am a little lost. What are you talking about?

Please tell me you are talking about football! I am in Chicago from June onwards.... if it is football, then I am in there like swimwear!

If it's about something completly unrelated, then I'll get my coat...

Cool... where is it? I love *proper* footie. I need to introduce my daughter to proper footie, I still have dreams of her going to primary school in England *sigh* which would mean getting back to the UK within 4 years. Anyway, that's the day the hubby goes down to Indianapolis for the race, so you never know, the wee one and I might just have to come down to Chicago.

Details please!
