HOLIDAZE: Drunken Fights Don't Take The Night Off In Wrigleyville

The Lincoln Avenue bar strip in Lincoln Park, put on an admirable sh*t show performance overnight, but it couldn't quite keep up with its big brother, Wrigleyville. Maybe next time, LP. Wrigleyville antics from Thanksgiving morning:

12:22AM—Assault in progress at Rebel Bar & Grill.

12:38AM—Battery witnessed by police officers outside Sluggers at Clark & Eddy. One arrest.

1:07AM—Clark Street police detail asks for all available cars to come to Clark Street in Wrigleyville. "Getting ugly fights breaking out."

1:13AM—Another fight at Sluggers.

1:14AM—Yet another fight outside of Sluggers. This one is moving westbound on Eddy Street.

1:39AM—Officers witness a hit and run incident at Clark and Eddy. A northbound light blue 4-door sedan strikes a pedestrian and loses its left mirror. Victim declines medical attention.

1:50AM—Glass is cracked at Strange Cargo, 3448 N. Clark.

  1. Sluggers is well-named. Opening soon: Beat the Crap Outta U Bar & Grill, which will be right next door to Knock U Down and Stomp on Yo Head Saloon...pending Alderman and zoning approval.

  4. Just what wondering what their family thinks when they show up for Thanksgiving dinner in Naperville with black eyes. Or what their employers think (if) when they come to work on Friday or Monday...

    1. I always wondered who exactly drinks at those bars and then fights at 2AM. Then I read some Yelp reviews of Barleycorn and it all made sense.

    2. I took the bait and read some Yelp reviews of Barleycorn. What a hoot! The long list of 1 star reviews (lowest) is all the entertainment and info you need. Worth a look so everyone knows what the neighborhood and cops are dealing with: http://www.yelp.com/biz/john-barleycorn-chicago-3

  5. Too bad that the city can't levy a tax on the stupidity of drunks - they'd fund 100 extra cops for a whole year in one night.

    1. hey, now THERE'S an idea. a 5 to 10 cent ...ah..."AMUSEMENT" tax, yeah thats it.....5 to 10 cent AMUSEMENT tax on EACH cocktail served in the entire city. this would be collected SEPERATELY from any other tax and streamed into the LE coffers to hire additional officers, buy new cars, purchasing of and training on fully auto M-4's and other 21st century weaponary essential in fighting overwhelming numbers of street thugs and maintaining public safety for TAX PAYING CITIZENS and their families.

  6. A real Alderman would let sluggers know that their liquor license is on the line, since this shitehole seems to be draining the city of needed police resources through overserving the chuckleheads who frequent it. But then again, we would actually need a real alderman, not a stooge like tom turkey.
