If you thought that Spring semester of freshman year was the only time one of your friends would come back bigger than ever, you were wrong, because Lincoln Park's German beer hall Prost! is returning after a two-year absence, and they've expanded into the art gallery next door, now filled with rows of communal wooden tables imported from the motherland, and a custom-built bar topped with a collection of steins.
The owners of Chicago's first post-Prohibition liquor license in 1933, The Berghoff has been bringing German food and drink to the Windy City for more than a century. The Loop institution opened before the Prohibition -- in 1898 -- but it really began as a brewery a couple of years before that. Now, it's known for its house brews (best when sampled in a flight of five), reubens, and old-world schnitzel entrees. Not surprising given its German roots, The Berghoff is a major player in Chicago's annual Oktoberfest celebrations.
