    Looking forward to that 8:00 a.m. Monday shot of hard liquor. Glad to know it’s already OK at Big Bear!!

      +1,00,000 LOL

        I have always been embarrassed to ask, hope they don’t judge this Saturday when I ask for a shot of rye, two coffees and scone.

    Why does Big Bear get so much hype? Is it that good?

    • John M

      No, but it’s one of the only places open in Bloomingdale, so they get a lot of repeat business.

        “one of the only places open in Bloomingdale”? When was the last time you were in that neighborhood? 2005?

        • John M

          Oh haha! Funny story bro, I live 3 blocks away from Big Bear, and yes, it’s still one of the only sit-down casual places in the neighborhood. I’m sure Red Hen will do fine, but Big Bear has a following.

            I also live 3 blocks away, but I also find boundary stone, rustik, bacio pizzeria, aroi thai, and red hen to be pretty good too. Looking forward to the showtime and the tapas opening up soon!

            I live in Bloomingdale as well which is why I found your comment odd. But I guess people have different interpretations of what constitutes a “sit-down casual place in the neighborhood”. As anon notes below, I think there are at least a handful of places that fall into that category as well.
            Point being, I think BB has a following b/c the food/drink are good as opposed to being one of the only place in a neighborhood that fills a certain void (that of a “sit down casual place”).

          • Well, technically, he is correct. It is one of the only places open. One of implying that there are in fact others… You listed 5 more, which compared to other neighborhoods is relatively small, making 1 seem not that far off from the total.

        this is a hilarious comment. you do mean this jokingly right?

      • Anon X

        If you mean one of the only places in the neighborhood you can go to get a side order of smug superiority, then yes, you’re right. However, I find the half dozen or so other places with in a few block radius far more inviting.

        • Roz

          Who’s smug? Everyone in there is always so nice!

    • anon

      its good. food is yummy. nice neighborhood vibe.

  • JohnDC

    I’d support the proposed hours. They’ve always been great neighbors and done good things for the community
