Poor decisions are a part of life. The key is mastering the smooth recovery.
For example, let's say you're ten beers into a makeshift bar crawl down Milwaukee Avenue. Oh, and it's Tuesday, so a hangover is not an option.
Your solution: lasagna pizza at 3a from the new Dimo’s.
The only thing more effective than pasta on a pizza might be crinkle cut fries, which Dimo's BBQ steak and fries ‘za drops along with thinly sliced steak, Sweet Baby Ray’s sauce, and a bed of mozzarella.
If your late-night cravings come in the form of breakfast foods, then the chicken and waffles pizza is your answer. And for dessert? A S'mores pizza, of course. That is, unless the mac and cheese pizza gets there first.
For entertainment while you dine, snag a seat at one of the window-side high-tops to look onto Damen for the best drunken show on earth. Unlike its Wrigleyville sister, this bright red restaurant maintains a liquor license and can be a one-stop-shop for a night out — with craft beer and wine by the glass to go with your lasagna pie.
Sometimes things have to feel wrong before they can feel right again.
