Des Plaines 'Badger bar' among 'fan bars' geared up for the Final Four
Want to watch the NCAA Final Four games with Wisconsin, Michigan State, Kentucky and Duke fans? To be among the true fans, the best place to go is one of the school-specific "fan bars" that dot the Chicago area. Among them is Countryside Saloon in Des Plaines, a newly designated "Badger bar." "After badgering them," co-owner Janet Bar said, laughing, "the (University of Wisconsin) alumni association was great about it. Last year was our first official year of being a Badger bar."
