Men and women tired of the fashion-show vibe of Boystown head to Big Chicks, a casual Uptown bar with funky decor, including the lady-filled art collection of owner Michelle Fire, aka the original Big Chick. Regulars include a smart, artsy crowd of gays, lesbians, and heteros who love this attitude-free bar for its free Sunday buffet (4–6pm) and the new geeky Wednesday night trivia. A DJ rolls in on weekends and the dance floor gets packed Friday and Saturday nights. Tweet, 5020 N. Sheridan Rd. ([tel] 773/728-5576), a vegetarian-friendly bunch spot next door, is also popular with the gay and lesbian set. Whether you’re going to Big Chicks or Tweet, bring cash; neither business accepts credit cards.
