Where I Go Out

At My Venues

Taco de pescado
$, Full Bar, Tacos, Whisky Bar, Wrigleyville
"This taco comes with crispy fried fish, cabbage, and chipotle mayo. I'm usually drunk when I'm at Big Star, and it hits the spot perfectly. Make sure to get a Michelada on the side."
Queso fundido
$, Full Bar, Tacos, Whisky Bar, Wrigleyville
"Sitting on the patio at Big Star on a beautiful sunny day with a La Paloma and some queso fundido is one of my favorite things to do in Chicago in the summer! The dish has just the right amount of chorizo to poblano to cheese ratio."
