This sausage (the bangers) and beer (the lace—a term for the doily of suds left after drinking down a beer) place comes with its own cicerone, who curates the rotating tap list. There’s a lot of taxidermy and dark leather in case you don’t feel the hair growing on your chest the moment you order a corn dog and an IPA.

What to drink
Something from Illinois; Half Acre or Solemn Oath (try the Goth Syrup, an Intelligentsia coffee collaboration) are good bets.
Wicker Park
The Sheboygan veal bratwurst sandwich is terrific, as is the grilled cheese.
