    Yes, this thread sucks, but I'll ask anyway.

    Where can I drink outside in Rogers Park? East, west, whatever. Shit take me all the way to Uptown, I don't care.

    Unfortunately, the two most common answers I get to this question are among the suckiest places in all of Chicago: Moody's and Heartland Cafe. Moody's because the beer selection is bad and the food is inedible, and Heartland Cafe because even though it looks like you can drink outside on their very nice patio, it is in fact a dry patio. Inside-only for alcohol at Heartland. And the food there sucks even more than at Moody's.

    Off the top of my head:

    Morseland, 1218 West Morse Avenue
    Heartland Cafe, 7000 N Glenwood
    Glenwood, 6962 N Glenwood (not technically outside, but I think they have windows that open to the street)
    Hop Haus, 7545 N Clark
    Gruppo di Amici, 1508 W Jarvis (more restaurant than bar, but some food with your cocktails can't be bad!)

    I am drawing a blank if any of the places on Sheridan near Loyola have outdoor seating.

    A little further west: Emerald Isle, 2535 W Peterson.

    There are multiple options in Andersonville with one of my favorites being the Edgewater, 5600 N Ashland.

    I have sat outside at the Heartland with drinks, but it's been a few years.

    Beaten by The GP but to provide detail:

    It's a bit south of your target area, but Edgewater Lounge at Bryn Mawr & Ashland has an outside seating area. It tends to fill up pretty quick though

    Well, if you'll go all the way to Uptown there are several right on Broadway near Lawrence:

    Fat Cat: Tons of outdoor seats...and some comfy couches as well

    Wild Pug: Not outside, but big front windows wide open in good weather

    Fiesta Mexicana: You can just get drinks outisde with no problem

    Crew: Same as above

    Thanks all - hope the weather holds up this weekend so I can entertain some out of town guests (DC and NYC) with some drinko alfresco.

    In nice weather the Candlelite has outdoor seating, and I have definitely had a drink out there. Western Avenue ain't exactly scenic, but the pizza is good and they have a fair number of good beers on tap.
