OK, folks, the nominations are in and now it’s time for you to vote for the Best Bar in the ‘Burbs.

Pick the place you love to visit for a cocktail or a beer. Or the place you visit to enjoy some down time with friends. Or to watch the big game on a big-screen TV. Vote for your favorite bar in Bolingbrook, Plainfield or Romeoville—you know, the one where everybody knows your name.

The Hawks are one screen, the Bulls the other. Or, perhaps, it’s Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning barking out his beloved signals—"Omaha, Omaha"—while Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman works to take away his favorite targets on the other side of the ball.

You know that long days often call for an adult beverage (or two) and you love to follow all the action, don't you?

Check out your Best Bar in the ‘Burbs nominations: Be sure to vote for your favorite in the poll below.  And keep in mind voting runs from Monday, Jan. 27, right on up to kickoff of the Super Bowl on Sunday, Feb. 2.

We’ll feature the winner in a follow-up post on Patch.

AAARGGHHHH, I CAN'T BELIEVE THIS! How can you run a story like this?? We shouldn't have ANY bars! I have ranted against alcohol for years, writing tons of blogs, thousands of comments, even a BOOK on why we shouldn't use alcohol! Haven't you read a thing I've written?? Here I type my fingers to the bone for years, thinking I've made a difference in the world, and then I see an article like this, where people are supposed to vote on their favorite BAR?? This sets a terrible example! No wonder marijuana is being legalized more and more! I have chastised pot smokers for years online, trying to help them see why we shouldn't use drugs, and their number one excuse is "Pot is safer than alcohol." I tell them over and over that we shouldn't smoke pot OR drink alcohol! How hard is that?? Alcohol is a drug. Just because it's legal doesn't make it right! We will NEVER get the pot smokers to understand why it's wrong and immature to use drugs, as long as people use alcohol! People need to GROW UP and set an example and not use mind-altering drugs to relax and unwind, have "fun", etc. What a thing to do! And all you people who drink and go to bars, you are giving the young people in the community the impression that when you grow up, it's good and fun to use a mind-altering drug. Is that what you want? And don't say it's okay to drink "in moderation." You wouldn't smoke POT in moderation, would you? Of course not! And don't say it's okay to drink "responsibly." My whole point is that a RESPONSIBLE person would not want to use a mind-altering drug in the first place! What a thing to do!
