With Super Bowl Sunday bearing down on us, we want to hear from you on what you think is the best bar in McHenry County.
Maybe this establishment has the best drink specials or happy hour or the most and biggest TVs for watching whatever game strikes your fancy or a friendly atmosphere that reminds you of the Cheers bar and "everyone knows your name."
Maybe it has the most and best beers on tap or a fantastic wine selection or creative cocktail for sipping in its cozy space.
We want to hear from you on where you go to unwind with friends. In this week's Chowdown Showdown, we are looking for the best bar in McHenry County.
Let us know your favorite spot by commenting below.
We are posting this week's Chowdown a day early — we typically post the weekly Chowdown on Sunday — as a way for readers to give other readers ideas for a place to watch the Super Bowl.
We will take votes through 5 p.m. Tuesday. From there, we will select finalists to square off in finalist's Showdown. Voting will start Wednesday morning for the finalists' Showdown and continue through noon on Friday. The weekly champion will be announced in an article on the McHenry County Patch.com sites Saturday morning.
This is all about participation so we hope you will chime in and check back.
So, without further ado, let’s get the voting started. Patch readers, tell us by commenting below, what is the BEST bar in McHenry County?
