This Northwest side liquor store/beer bar (called a “slashie” in Chicago) is just as likely to throw a trivia night party as it is to book a live Iron Maiden tribute band. The wood-paneled walls and scruffy environs scream dive, but Fischman has its own food truck (Fischmans Wagyu Wagon) and hosts regular food-truck gatherings. It also takes craft beer very seriously, tapping 18 gems and selling even more in the store.
