Definitely go to Kuma's (2900 W Belmont Ave, Chicago, IL). It's a metal themed restaurant.

Also, adding to those:

Susie's Drive-in (4126 W Montrose Ave Chicago, IL)

Lockdown Burger (poor man's Kuma's Corner, but with a more diverse menu and less dick rules) (1024 N Western Ave, Chicago, IL)

Jim's Original (if you want to have a real Chicago style hotdog) (1250 S Union Ave Chicago)

Also, if you're there on a Tuesday, Reggie's (2105 S State St, Chicago, IL) is worth checking out. They have 25 cent wings on Tuesday, plus there's a pretty neat record store upstairs called Record Breakers.

Reckless is the most well-known and most established joint, but there are others as well. Laurie's Planet of Sound is pretty awesome, and there's a damn decent store attached to Reggie's as well.

Speaking of which, a few decent metal venues to Google before you make your trip are Reggie's, Metro, Subterranean, The Empty Bottle, Bottom Lounge, Ultra Lounge and EXIT. These are where most of the punk / metal acts that come through town stop (aside from the larger commercial joints like HOB or the Riviera for major acts).

I don't know anything about the Squared Circle, but those other joints are teh tits ( . )( . )

Also, you have to get either some Italian beef or a Chicago style dog while you're in the area. Al's Beef has both (although their beef is better than their dogs), and they have locations all over the city. My favorite is the one right across from Gino's East on W. Ontario at Wells. There are so many great hot dog places it's impossible to recommend just one. Google that shit and decide for yourself, based on your travel plans. Most of them are far better than anything you've ever had outside of Chicago, so you basically can't go wrong. I personally like Murphy's Red Hots and Hot Doug's.

Finally, if you're in a more discerning mood and have the cash, Chi-town has a lot of excellent steak places. I recommend the Chicago Chop House (which, incidentally, is two blocks east of Al's Beef and Gino's East on W. Ontario).

When you go to someone else's house and you have to turn the sink faucet clockwise to turn it off...drives me nuts. Similarly when the toilet paper/paper towels are in the underhand direction.

Or when the hot is on the right and the cold on the left. What kind of backwards people do that!?

But then there are a few really awesome bands, like No Master and Canyons and HCL
People want to talk about supporting the scene and everything when its a bunch of horse shit unless you are conflicts. And everyone is just an elitist asshole, people don't care about you unless you are super tough guy. And the thing is, we do have some really good bands. Everyone else just sucks.

Canyons is really good. Doesn't the vocalist work at Mills or whatever its called?And shut up asshole

Yeah, are any of those restaurants family friendly? I'm traveling with a three-year old and a one-year old. I'd go to the metal restaurant but my wife probably won't like me taking the boys there. Although I can picture the waitresses and my youngest son enjoying them.

I am going to hit Reckless Records on Wisconsin Ave. The Misfits show I'm going to is pretty close and it's open until 8pm on Sundays. And their website shows them having a lot of used Sonic Youth albums.

Don't you mean counter-clockwise?
