I'll be in Chicago next weekend, and am looking for a place to watch Wrestlemania on Sunday night. The WWE official "blast area" page (http://www.wwe.com/schedules/blastareas/) doesn't list any bars in the city that are showing the PPV; does anyone know of a place either within the city limits or only a short cab ride outside the city that is ordering Wrestlemania?
I remember I used to watch a lot of wrestling at The Cubby Bear, so you might try calling them and seeing if they show it. Otherwise if you can get your hands on a paper copy of the Chicago Reader the ads in Section 3 might mention bars that are showing it.
I'd invite you to watch it but for the first time ever WWE has so bored me that I will not be ordering Wrestlemania.
Palatine is up near Ohare - so you could catch the El up there and go to that place. I think that Pizzaria Duo (across the street from Pizzaria Uno) used to show them, so you could check with them. I bet some of those places in the near northside (Division street, Harry Carrey's, Hard Rock area) should have it...
Try - Ethylís Party (2600 S. Wentworth Ave.), a review says they show Smackdown
