College Basketball's March Madness Descends On Mother Hubbard's Sports Pub

Mother Hubbard's Sports Pub is all about college hoop (at least for the next couple of weeks). We eat, sleep and roll our hand-formed, old-fashioned burgers thinking about basketball.

And why not? No one in River North (that's Chicago speak for that neighborhood just across the river from the downtown Loop) can show more games at one time thanks to our 28 sattelite receivers and over 40 TV monitors.

You know, it's the number or receivers, not TV monitors, that determines how many different games can be shown at the same time. So keep your head on a swivel and get in here for your share of Madness.

Open 6 AM Thursday, Saturday and Sunday for live broadcast of Team USA Ice Hockey from Sochi

Mother Hubbard's Sports Pub will open at 6 AM this Thursday, Saturday and Sunday to present a live broacast of the USA Ice Hockey team from Sochi.

Chalks The Walk. Or " How to help our out of town friends find the best NFL action."

At Mother Hubbard's Sports Pub we spare no expense when it comes to helping our out of town visitors find all the NFL action. 

We contracted Lianna all the way from Florence to create this recent masterpiece. The completed project was an interpretation of the Sistine Chapel ceiling with Jay Cutler reaching out to touch an unidetified receiver. 

Unfortunately, a subsequent drizzle altered the sketch so it more resembled a colorful Rorschach inkblot of the teletubbies palying twister.

Just another reason to arrive before kick-off!

Open Early for Notre Dame/Navy Game Broadcast LIve From Ireland.

Mother Hubbard's Sports Pub Welcomes Derrick Rose To The Neighborhood.

"Chicago Bulls star Derrick Rose has found a new home to match his sky-high game: a condominium in the Trump International Hotel & Tower" says Crain's Chicago Business in a recent post. Click here to read more.

The article notes that the Trump Tower makes one sweet bachelor pad and we couldn't agree more. Especially when you're late night walking distance from Mother Hubbard's Sports Pub. Chicago Blackhawks forward Patrick Kane is also a Trump Tower neighbor. 

We won't suggest that Mother Hubbard's presence had anything to do with their choice of neighborhood or that the famous developer chose the old Sun-Times location for the short walk to Chicago's finest, old-fashioned, hand-made burger. We'll only note that we were here first.
