Kibbitz is a Yiddish term meaning “to chat in an informal, friendly way.” It should come as no surprise, then, that Kibbitznest Books, Brews & Blarney in Lincoln Park is a wifi-free (gasp!) place to chat with friends in a hybrid bookstore, cafe, and bar. The bookstore features both new and used liberal arts books, the cafe and bar features lounge chairs, couches, and communal tables for socializing over a pint of beer, a cheese plate, or a glass of wine. There’s a reading room for those looking for a quiet evening with a book, games for those looking to interact with others, and typewriters for those looking to write mom and dad a letter the old fashioned way. Leave your laptops at home; Kibbitznest is reserved for human (or book, or beer) interaction only.
