We headed to United Center-adjacent Park Tavern on Saturday to check out the gastropub’s inaugural Bulls’ home game service. We’re guessing a rather sparse crowd was the product of the tavern’s newness: Once word spreads about the 40 craft beers, tabletop taps, 20-plus flatscreens and—our personal favorite—animal tots (for the uninitiated, that’s basically poutine with tater tots in place of fries), we’re thinking open barstools here will be a thing of the past.
