Moving along with the parade, you may end up at this great neighborhood bar. This year, they will be offering beer and frozen libations on the patio along with a lot of grilled meats. The patio closes at 10 p.m. on Pride Sunday.
Next stop on the parade route, is the place to pick up some gourmet carry out, decedant desserts & awesome, just like in New Orleans, beignets. Open from 8 a.m. till noon, then close during the parade. They will re-open after. BBQ menu til 8pm.
For the vegetarian in us all, you can't beat Chicago Diner. With reasonably priced entrees that seem un-vegetarian, you're sure to feel good for having noshed here. That way, you can be a lil' naughty as the day progresses.
You can't miss the pink awening at this Halsted Street institution. With an expansive patio and a margarita list almost as large. This is the "it" place to be during the parade. I warn you, however. Do not over-imbibe on their margaritas.
This next stop along the parade route is at times jammed. Only because the floats in the parade are usually marred here because of the bend at Halsted and Broadway. Stopping here for a martini is sure to get you through the remainder of the parade.
Oh to see and be seen. Is that a question? Melrose Diner's patio is larger than most people's home's. It seems fit that one would opt to sit outside, eating healthy portions of anything that you can imagine while watching the parade go by.
In the mood for some Thai? Need to sit down? Here you go. Bamee Noodle Shope is famous for, well, their noodle dishes. A perfect afternoon meal. So, carb load yourself and know that you are almost at the finish line of the parade.
