An On-Site Chicago Fire Viewing Party Is Going Down Tonight



2Between the Union Station stairs in the Untouchables to Twin Anchors restaurant in the 1999 film Return to Me (hello, David Duchovny!), Chicago certainly has had its fair share of star power, movie-wise. But lately, it's the television shows that are taking the spotlight — including the red-hot NBC series Chicago Fire.

Of course, when watching anything with local color, it's fun to pick out familiar stomping grounds. If you happen to be a fan of Lottie's Pub, you'll love tonight's CF episode because the Bucktown watering hole is going to be featured in flames — and a different name. Starting at 6 p.m., Lottie's will air the show on all of its 19 television screens upstairs and four flat screens and two projectors downstairs. And to celebrate its stardom, there will be $4 Fireball shots, $4 chicken sandwiches, and $2.50 Old Style cans. A little more exciting than your couch on a Wednesday night, no?

Lottie's Pub, 1925 West Cortland Street (between Wolcott and Winchester Avenues); 773-489-0738.
