    M-Tu 5-11PM, W-Su 11AM-11PM. $5-18. One of the best locations for Neapolitan-style pizza in Chicago, and unlike the well-known main competitor Spacca Napoli, here you won't have to wait an hour to get in the door. Makes an amazing $5 personal pizza, and features free delivery.

Tuesdays are set aside for the Chicago Underground Comedy stand-up showcase.

  • Architectural Artifacts

    4325 N Ravenswood Ave
    Chicago has built many of the world's greatest buildings, and Chicago has also destroyed many of the world's greatest buildings. This is where a lot of the pieces wind up — an enormous warehouse full of tiles, furnishings, and exterior ornament from classic skyscrapers and bungalows. (Find the interior courtyard for the biggest pieces.) The prices befit the awe the items inspire, but it's absolutely worth a browse whether or not you plan to buy anything.

    Hungry Brain

    2319 W Belmont Ave
    There's a lot to like at this small Roscoe Village bar: a few pinball and arcade machines, the sense of being in someone's comfortable basement (with beer), and the Sunday night (10PM) Transmission series for improvisational and experimental jazz.

  • Timber Lanes

    Timber Lanes

    1851 W Irving Park Rd
    M-F 11AM-2AM, Sa 3PM-3AM, Su 1PM-2AM. $2-2.50 per game, except F-Sa at night, when it's $20/hour per lane. If you like to sample the bowling culture of any city you visit, this is a fine choice; there are eight well-kept lanes, a cash bar, a good jukebox, and a few references to The Big Lebowski. Might be wise to call ahead for availability in the early evening, though, as there are a few leagues.
