I’m guessing you have already heard by now that Chicago got a crap-ton of snow a week ago today. 20 inches of snow fell on the city making it the third largest snowfall in Chicago’s history. Snowtorious BIG shut down Lake Shore Drive for a day-and-a-half , it paralyzed both O’Hare Airport and Midway Airport and it made just about every road in the Chicago area impassable.
Hundreds of people waited helplessly in their cars along Lake Shore Drive for hours before helped arrived. Others hunkered down in their homes with candles lit and peanut butter and jelly sandwiches in hand. My wife and I, well, we did what seemed like the only logical thing to do in a blizzard; we went to a bar. This is our harrowing tale of sampling never-before-drank brown ales, wading through ankle deep snow and waking up to buried cars, coffee and a laptop in which to work from home with.
