Never tried cheese curds, seen a life-sized moose, and/or partied with Wisconsin fans? Don’t worry; I have the perfect cure for you – a rustic neighborhood dive bar with animals hanging on the walls, free popcorn, tall drinks, quick re-fills, a beer garden, big TV’s, passionate fans and much more! Will’s Northwoods Inn is nestled deep in the heart of enemy territory in Lakeview and is home to the Wisconsin Badgers and Green Bay Packers.
Founded in 1991, this unique sports bar has a small town Wisconsin bar feel in terms of décor. On the walls you will see a cougar, moose, deer, fish and more. If you are a recent graduate, you will probably run into many familiar faces.
Even if you don’t have a Wisconsin tie, this place is worth checking out- there’s no other place like it in Chicago. You can expect a friendly, laid-back, fun, party atmosphere with cheap drink specials and a lot of passionate fans. If you go on a game day, you will get a ticket at the door for a raffle at half-time and $2 brats/burgers.
Have nothing planned tomorrow night, go to Will’s and watch the Wisconsin Badgers take on the Nebraska Cornhuskers!
