6 Corners Sports Bar

No matter what kind of dipping it is, it's always fun, from doing it at the end of a late night skinny style to late-'90s teens doing it by putting their hands up on your hip. Giving you another dipping outlet, 6 Corners Sports Bar

Just opened on the iconic Wicker Park/Bucktown intersection for which it's named, 6CSB is capitalizing on two great American obsessions -- sports and dipping stuff in other stuff -- in an appropriately flatscreened-out pub with the requisite green walls and wood paneling, giving the place a classic feel, like getting to second base with the Venus de Milo. The fun starts with various sized "flights", in which patrons can mix and match from a 14-strong list of condiments (cilantro ranch, creamy wasabi ginger, Caribbean honey, garlic herb aioli) and 14 sides (seasoned potato wedges, Cajun grilled shrimp, fire grilled beef skewers, tempura vegetables) in whatever combo they please, unless that combo is Combos, in which case, hit a mini mart. Dipping action continues with eight different sliders (sirloin, pulled pork, fried chicken, tilapia) which come with two sauces, optional cheese, and pretzel, multigrain, or Italian buns, which are firm and alluring, but man, don't they know it

Wash all the dip'd fun down with any of eight draft beers (Blue Moon, Guinness, Fat Tire), or cap your meal with something sweet 'n fried like mini funnel cakes or donut holes, dunkable in strawberry, chocolate, dulce de leche, or coconut creme, cause when you dip, I dip, we dip. Cause everyone's too fat to stand properly.
