Editorial Review of The Dugout Bar and Grill

If for some reason you experience a wave of nostalgia for your college frat house, head over to The Dugout to relive the glory days. With beer pong and flip cup games in the back, peanut shells on the floor and over-served patrons everywhere, all that's missing are Jell-O shots and a homemade beer bong (although I wouldn't be surprised to see either making an appearance here).

This aptly named sports bar is underground and could be mistaken for a Cubs ticket-broker (the entrance tends to be a gathering spot for scalpers during the season). The small space gets crowded pretty quickly on game days, with six flat screens dedicated to the Cubbies. While ordering a drink, take a gander at the baseball cards under the bar's glass top. The back room is home to a small beer-pong table, where players can win bleacher seats and Cubs and Dugout apparel in weekly tournaments.

This place is known for its ridiculously cheap drink specials, including $5 pitchers during March Madness and Purdue football games (the bar recently became a Boilermaker supporter) and $15 all-you-can-drink and all-you-can-eat wings on Wednesdays and Fridays after work. Holiday parties are also taken to the extreme, with past Halloweens featuring pole-dancing contests and appearances by the "Dugout Girls" on opening day of the Cubs baseball season.

The bar's limited menu is similar to what you'll find at the ballpark, including Chicago-style hot dogs, burgers, nachos, pizza, wings, waffle fries, chicken fingers and mozzarella sticks. But unlike at Wrigley Field, the peanuts are always free.

Average cost: <$10
