Guide: Where to Go Before, During, or After the Blackhawks Parade

View as Map

Tomorrow is a big day in Chicago. For the second time in four years, the Blackhawks are Stanley Cup champions. And for the second time in four years, there will be a raucous parade to celebrate. If you're planning on attending at the United Center, Grant Park, or along Washington Street in between, you might need a place to stop in for a drink or a bite before, during, or after, especially because booze is not allowed. These places are either along the route, at the beginning or end, or offer specials to coincide.
