Post Where does the Chicagoland contingent of VMB watch the Vikin
I have noticed there are a number of people on here who live in the Chicago area. I was just wondering where some of you catch the Vikings games. I live at the south end of Naperville and watch the games at Tommy Nevins Pub on Rt59. They will always put the Vikings on one of the TVs for me even though I will on occasion get pretty loud watching the game. I used to catch them at Tailgaters in Bolingbrook until Nevins opened up 1 mile from my house. Do any of you have a relatively large group of Vikings fans watching the games together? Skol

I just watch at home when they're on and otherwise, I tend to listen to the radio broadcasts on NFL.com and then watch the games on NFL Rewind the next day. I used to watch the games at a great bar/restaurant called Grizzly's but it closed years ago. :(

I know Redmond's on N. Sheffield in Wrigleyville, is basically a Vikings bar on NFL Sundays but I've never seen a game there.

I've watched a few games at the Brownstone Tavern on Lincoln Ave. over the years.

Apparently, there's a Minnesota Vikings Fan Club of Chicagoland that watches games at Gamekeepers at 1971 N Lincoln Ave.

I will have to find out if there are members of that group out in the western suburbs. Thanks for the link

Redmond's Ale House in Lakeview. I have never been but they advertise themselves as a Vikings bar along with big 10 football.

Also I wouldn't be surprised if there was a place up in Andersonville.

I've watched a couple games at Redmond's in 2013, but then got DirecTV, and now that I'm in Evanston (at Northwestern), I'm basically stuck with Nevin's (which sucks). Though I bought Sunday Ticket Streaming now so I don't have to waste Sundays at Nevins.

BTW, for my Capstone project (I'm getting my Masters in Analytics), I started a website http://www.justnoms.com to help you find great food (we launched in Chicago and SF). You rate the menu items, not the restaurant, and we provide personalized ratings and recommendations (like Netflix for food). I'd really appreciate it if any Chicagoans could check it out (and use it!).
