Kuma's Corner, Chicago
We don't often review bars here on Liquor Snob, but we spent some time in Chicago last week, and this little gem of a place came to our attention. We didn't get to go there, because we didn't hear about it until our last day in town, but it's so on the docket for our next trip. Why the excitement, you might ask? Our hypothesis is that this might be the greatest bar in existence, for these (and possibly other) reasons, in ascending order of greatitude:
- Make Your Own Mac & Cheese: This item should be on every menu of every dining establishment from here to forever.
- Bourbon on Tap: Our sources indicate Kuma's Corner serves Buffalo Trace bourbon on tap. Yes, Buffalo Trace. Yes, on tap.
- Heavy Metal Hamburgers & Martinis: This one's the coup de grace, at least for us. All of their sandwiches are named after metal bands, from the famous (Slayer, Black Sabbath) to the...more obscure (Hatebeak, Pig Destroyer), and on top of that, they sound friggin' amazing. Gourment toppings on 10 oz burgers, all named after our favorite bands? What's not to love?
Our dream is to go there and order a Mastodon Burger (BBQ Sauce, Cheddar, Bacon, Frizzled Onions) and a Mother Puncher (Vanilla Stoli, Southern Comfort, and Cranberry Juice) to build out the theme (it's either that or the Slayer/Angel of Death combo), then guzzle Buffalo Trace from the tap until we're escorted out. Who's with us?
