At the 2012 Bar & Nightclub Awards, the nation found out what Chicagoans have known since January 2009….Bull & Bear is the number one Sports Bar. And who is responsible for securing this title? The Bull & Bear friends, family and fans who have supported the venue long before Hubbard Street became the new Rush St. and the term "River North" was known throughout the city.
On June 22nd, Bull & Bear celebrated their success with an event unlike any other! All in honor of their supporters. The celebration included tasting stations and passed appetizers featuring "fan favorites" including Goose Island beers, beverage best sellers and of course, their signature mini "short orders". VIP gift bags and souvenir pilsner glasses were given to guests' upon arrival. A live broadcast hosted by The Score Chicago Sports Radio station featured appearances from Terry Boers & Dan Bernstein. As the evening wore on a live set by DJ Lee Michaels set the mood as guests celebrated into the night.
