Poitin Stil – Pronounced “poo-chine stil” Gaelic for Moonshine.

Irish or not, you’ll feel like you’re knocking ’em back in Galway at this Rogers Park’s authentic Irish pub. The name (pronounced “poo-chine still”) is Gaelic for moonshine. Located in the former Charmers space, the bar was rehabbed and walls were knocked down, so look for exposed bricks and large windows, not to mention the maroon shades of Galway’s home team colors.

Mon – Fri: 3PM to 2AM
Sat & Sun: 3PM to 12AM

From a fan:
I never knew that this little Treasure Shop existed in Rogers Park. I came here for the Shop Jarvis Square Local Artisan Christmas Market. I was really impressed by this pretty large size antique shop with such reasonable prices. Everything here is beautiful and hand pick. It is not cluttered like other antique shops and you can easily stroll through the shop. Beautiful home goods pieces. I am a huge fan!

FactoryTheatreThe Factory Theater

1623 W Howard Street
Chicago, IL 60626

Right after saving a multitude of puppies and nuns from a burning bus en route to an orphanage, The Factory Theater decided that creating shows would be even more rewarding than heroism.

That would be an awesome story. Truth is, most Chicagoans created theater companies because they didn’t want to wait for the right kind of shows to appear – they wanted to make them. The Factory was no exception to this rule, but they took it a step or ten further. The Factory was going to create their shows from scratch, doing exactly the kind of theater they wanted to do.

Almost 25 seasons later, the formula seems to be working. From writing workshops to the closing night bash, the process ensures The Factory shows are a unique experience that fits their exacting standards: Original, Bold, and Full-Tilt. The shameless ensemble are ambassadors of a good time, making certain that Chicago remains heartily entertained.

Yeah, this is a better story than that burning bus. Trust.
