Any place where baby strollers coexist with drag queens and Caesar salads are served with a hamburger on the side is okay in our book, but now that Hamburger Mary’s has expanded, yet again, to the Rec Room next door, they are brewing their own beer and expanding their programming in Mary’s Attic. Plus Ashley and Brandon, the twin brothers and owners of the Chicago location, just bought the national franchise rights with the owner of the West Hollywood location. Look for more Mary’s locations across the country, and world, to look at Chicago as a model for growth.
