    Speaking of favorite bars...

    What your favorite, bike oriented/friendly bar?

    I like McSorleys in NYC on a Sunday afternoon after a ride because of the atmosphere, ease of keeping my eye on my bike right outside, and the fact that I never get weird looks because of my bike outfit.

    For me The Triple Rock Social Club, on the west bank here in Minneapolis.

    http://www.triplerocksocialclub.com/

    Not only do they encourage alternative forms of transportation (look at the bottom of their homepage), but they also have a burger/pint for 5$. Not just burgers, but veggie burgers for all of you vegans out there. Not to mention tuesdays are 2 for 1's much drunkeness has occured within those brick walls.

    Of course any bar which you can succesfully navigate home from after a couple of beers is good in my book.

    I don't think it ever happened. Weather is getting nicer, and we should make this for a weekend. The weekdays will suck for me.

    In one of those rare moments in life, I concur with 165 about meeting on a weekend.

    Also: the handlebar is cool and all... but once in a while a guy needs some meat. (165, I don't want to hear some gay bar joke out of you. I do in fact mean beef, as in hamburger.) How's about getting them to but some black angus on the menu? Then, the bar would be awesome!... Not that I wouldn't commit to hanging with you guys there anyways.

    Nevertheless, Quenchers is my new favorite bar in Chicago.

    A great little pub/bar is Jury's. Neighborhood atmosphere (not a 'biker' bar but nice), great burgers, good beer selection and a rear deck. Lincoln Ave and Pensacola Ave.

    McGlinchys....awesome! I go there a lot... Cheap beer and lots of fixed gear bikes chained up outside to look at. If you see the "nocoins" bike with a raingutter as a makeshift fender outside, you will know I am inside.... and probably drunk. I live a few blocks down from that bar.

    I dont know McKenna's.... where is that? ...$1 pints...and its not PBR...sign me up.
