When you Wiki "neighborhood joint with a good vibe and great food," there is a picture of the Spot Bar. If you've ever lived in a great 'hood like Lincoln Park or Bucktown, you had that place that was a couple of blocks from your front door. You didn't schlep downtown or go out of your way to go anyplace else, because why the heck would you?
There is quite possibly no better place to hit on your way home from a Nuggets or Avalanche game. You ate hours ago, got your beer on during the game, and now need a plate of hot wings to make it so you can get up tomorrow.
