Chicago >Savemore Liquors
invaders are never welcome.
Ignore the pinball fundamentalist. Save More is a classic Chicago dive of the Ancien Regime. Those who want to sip with the bourgeoise can hoof off to Lincoln Park.
Pleasant proletarians recline in the dimly lit atmosphere of Save More. Service is occasionally brusque, but always caring. They used to have 25 cent shots of Muscatel. That was a damn good deal.
I might remind readers of depinball's pubescent review that the US invaded Iraq. Perhaps his pinball- obsessed arrogance nerved the natives like Bremmer's pomposity and ignorance pissed off the Mesopotamians. Sorry you didn't have a good time. Don't come waltzing in like some fascist Tommy in a lowly gin mill and you might be treated with the kindness and sensitivity that is indigenous to Save More.
I give Save More an 11 out of 10!
Don't try to play the pinball machine.
I went in here to play the pinball machine on 09/06/06. This was the first time Ive ever set foot in the Savemore Lounge, and the bartender made a snide comment in my direction as I walked in and toward the pinball machine. As I was about to put money in the machine, the bartender asked if she could help me. I pointed to the machine, and said I was going to play it. She informed me that I needed to have ID to play the game. I reached to show her my ID, and she then informed me that I also needed to be drinking to play the game. I could see that I was in a losing situation here, and even if I did get a drink, I wasnt going to have any fun playing pinball, so I turned and walked out.
If you have a bar with a pinball machine, you should expect people to play it. This was the first and last time I will ever be in Savemore Lounge. If the clientele is anything like the bartender, youre about as welcome here as you are in Iraq.
