Best of Roscoe Village Part 3
Four Treys 3333 N Damen Ave
Not to be confused with Four Moons, Four Treys is about a block away on the corner of Henderson and Damen. And where Four Moons caters to drinkers looking for unique craft beers and something to eat, Four Trey’s offers two terrible taps (Magners and Bud Light) and some other restaurant’s menu to look at. In case you get really hungry, I’ve heard rumors that if you yell “¡Tengo Hambre!” towards the heavens and then rub your stomach three times, the Tamales Guy will come running with as many tamales as your bloated drinking belly can handle. And if you get really desperate, beg the bartender for a Milkbone. Just don’t be surprised if you have to compete with two other dogs to get your treat. That’s right, since they lack the ability to feed you solids, you can bring dogs into the bar! I really think there is nothing better than getting drunk with your best friend next to you– You walk them there, and they walk you home.
Like I said before, The Four Treys beer selection is pretty awful; they have a couple different domestic bottles and random liquors behind the bar but the only thing I see people ordering are PBRs and shots of Jameson. But when you have a daily deal (except for Friday and Saturday) of $2.50 Pabsts and $3 shots of Jameson, who’d want to order anything else? Other highlights include a stuffed shark, a pool table and no crowds. My only issue with this bar is any time they show Bears games– a couple of regulars always mute the TV and blast the radio coverage– commericals included, which is ten times more annoying than listening to Joe Buck announce the game. As long as the Bears aren’t playing, or I’m supposed to be working, you can find me with a beer and a shot at The Four Treys.
