The sports world is like everything else right now. It’s racked with uncertainty and postponements, rule changes and new normals, and probably no prospect of a Bears Playoff appearance.

There’s very little you can’t do on the patio at Park and Field in Logan Square. It feels less like an outdoor patio and more of an outdoor empire. The space is gigantic, with tables, bocce courts, Adirondack chairs, multiple firepits (where you can make s’mores), and a camper-turned-bar. Plus, it has seven TVs with sound on for Bears games.
