Most underrated music venue: Quenchers
If you’re looking to see unpretentious bands in an unpretentious bar with one of the most extensive beer menus in the city, you could do worse than seeing a show at Quenchers. Also, three words: tater. Tot. Pizza. Need we say more? No, we need not say more.
Runners-up: The Burlington, The Whistler, Rosa’s Lounge
Most underrated theater: Prop Thtr
Most known for past shows like Hizzoner and Point Break Live!, you never know what to expect at this nondescript little theatre off Elston. Instead of crowds and tourists a la Second City, you’ll feel like you’re in on a neighborhood secret as you check out left-field acts from one of the city’s finest spots for fringe theater.
Runners-up: The Cornservatory, Victory Gardens Theater, Chopin Theatre
