Real-life friends can still do that at Guthrie’s Tavern. Not only does the bar offer stellar — and well-priced — signature drinks like Pimm and ginger ale, but it also serves up over 50 board games to test your motor skills while you drink. Sip a cocktail and claim it was the Colonel in the living room with the butter knife; it’s all par for the course in this Wrigleyville tavern.
Just a couple blocks from Wrigley Field on Addison, Guthrie’s is pretty unassuming compared to other bars in the area. But this small tavern served as big inspiration to the (now cancelled) TBS comedy “My Boys,” where a TV group of friends gathered each week to drink beer and play games.
