Butch McGuire's Has Christmas Spirit!

The sports bar Butch McGuire's on division street (famous for bars like "Mothers" and where the movie "About Last Night" was supposedly set) is known for their Christmas decorations. I went there recently to check them out (and have a beer) and was mightily impressed.

This is a view of the front bar from the doorway and you can clearly see the two levels of train tracks as well. There are also dual level trains in one of the other dining rooms off the bar.

Here is a close up of the trains.

I like Santa in the outhouse reading a Pl*yboy magazine, too. Nice touch.

Highly recommended if you are in the vicinity. Per the bartender they keep the decorations up until near St. Patrick's day when they are replaced with the seasonal green for drinking.

Haven't been there since 1975. When I visited there was an ever present faint smell of vomit. So I never went back.

I should try it again.
