Pie and Beer on Randolph Street

Hunker down.

Find a suitable darkened shelter fully stocked with beer, chili and meat pies.

We’re sure all of the above probably went through your mind as the first dusting of snow hit town yesterday.

But if that last option is still lingering with you, great news: Lone Wolf, a throwback to the neighborhood bars of yore, opens tomorrow on Randolph Street.

You’re going to feel that you’ve just entered some very old Chicago corner joint, with that imposing pillar-flanked bar and its opaque glass-block windows. But with the guys from places like Bar Deville and Bangers & Lace teaming up with the Barrelhouse Flat crew to bring you this, you’re actually getting... well, still kind of an old-fashioned place.

See, you don’t need reservations. Just show up after work with some people who know the value of good conversation, soft leather booths and Three Floyds options like Zombie Dust on tap.

Still, come hungry. They’ve got Bridgeport’s Pleasant House Bakery making a bunch of their savory pies in versions like steak-and-ale.

This is, after all, pie weather.
