    Good question. You might want to get there 30 - 60 min. early. Just a guess.
  5. Game 1 Meetup for Chicago Wings Fans

    There are currently no plans to do this again on Saturday but we certainly hope to do it again later in the playoffs. As for a place to catch a Wings game in Chicago, Avenue Tavern is a great choice. Other bars to check out are Tin Lizzy and Grand River. I'll probably end up back at Avenue Tavern for Saturday's game. Because the owner is such a passionate fan, it's the closest thing I've found to watching a game back home in Detroit. @creedie: hope to see you there Thursday!

    Hope you can make it. The owner is being very good to us and I'm hoping we can make this a regular thing if we get enough turnout. Can't argue with that at all. It's amazing how many Detroit refugees you find here. But we're a rabidly loyal bunch when it comes to the Wings.
