    Chicago Game Watch

    I'm new to Chicago and will be heading to a bar for the game. What are the Cyclone bars in the area?

    The Fizz is a great place to watch a game, I was there last thanksgiving with family and we went there to watch the game. There were quite a few ISU fans there. The owners themselves I don't think are ISU fans but they make ISU the priority for the TV's and sound. The food there is great as well, I recommend an order of fries with mayo truffle dipping sauce. Death never tasted so good

    Re: Chicago Game Watch

    I have watched games at both bars, I prefer Corcorans over Fizz....if you end up going to Corcorans go to the backroom, thats where the majority of Cyclone fans watch the game.

    Re: Chicago Game Watch

    How crowded do these places get? How early should I go with a friend to get a spot? I've only been to them for basketball, but I saw some pictures from the football meets that looked pretty crowded.

    Re: Chicago Game Watch

    Corcorans can get pretty busy in the back room, i would get there an hour early if you want a table...you can watch the morning games that way. Fizz is way less busy and a bunch more tables so you can get there right at game time and be fine. There is a greater Cyclone atmosphere at Corcorans.

    Thanks. Unfortunately we can't get there an hour early, so I guess Fizz it is.

    Thanks for the info! I'll be taking the brown line around 1:00 towards Fizz. Pumped to see my fellow Cyclones!
