a few days ago, some friends of mine and I went to Chippewa's bar area. here are some reviews:
big shotz -- eh, all right
area 42 -- too.... dudebro
bottoms up and 67 west -- right next to each other, and both pretty awesome places. always packed, but cool anyway. bottoms up combines a small dance floor and a patio out back, plus they have blue moon, which rocks.
soho -- wayyyyyy too pretentious. I saw someone going coke off one of the tables upstairs! plus, theres always a cover.
skybar -- still have to go
