in Lincoln Park & Old Town

Weeds has the tenacity of its namesake flora, sticking to its beatnik-meets-bohemia roots for years while the neighborhood gentrified around it. If the walls could talk, you’d hear some strange yarns from the crew who work and drink here. There's sometimes live music, and you can quaff in the laid-back beer garden. Sunday brunch is all-you-can-eat ($20).
