Where To Eat
Although Pulaski Park offers only a handful of restaurants (which are concentrated along Ashland Avenue) the surrounding areas more than compensate for it. Along Milwaukee and Chicago Avenues in Noble Square, you'll find Cuban, Middle Eastern, Thai, and upscale American fare. La Pasadita, just south of the Division Blue Line stop, is a well-known taqueria that has been open since 1976. Just to the west is Wicker Park, which has one of the most eclectic and exciting culinary scenes in the city. If you're having a craving, just head to Wicker Park's Six Corners. You'll find your fix in no time.
Friday Night Fun
Head to a show at the Free Street Theater, which is on the northern end of Pulaski Park and has been in operation since 1969. The Chopin Theatre is also a popular live performance space and is located on the southern end of the neighborhood. Head to Division Street in Wicker Park for some dinner and bar-hopping, which has plenty of options for continuing your night. There are also some dive bars scattered throughout the area for a quieter, more relaxed night. Whether you want to attend a gallery opening, go clubbing, or have a candle-lit dinner, just head west.
The Perfect Sunday
The neighborhood's park is the obvious choice for a Sunday picnic or a quick stroll around the area. Head to Division Street, Ashland Avenue, or into Wicker Park for all kinds of brunch options. There are also plenty of locally owned stores in the immediate area, so your Sunday shopping trips are just a short walk away.
