Playing board games never gets old, especially if drinking is involved. This Wrigleyville bar acts as an alternative to all those frat-boy-infested bars on Clark. Guthries’ cozy bar and enclosed-porch areas get crowded on the weekends, so it’s best to go during the week. The bar offers a nice selection of microbrews, some food and Irish coffee. A bookshelf of more than fifty board games boasts the cheatable Monopoly and Scrabble and thinkable Cranium and Taboo. Combat cabin fever this winter by going out, getting tipsy and showing off your Jenga mind-control tactics.
