Seems that he discovered what locals, out of town visitors and nearby hotel concierges have know for years: Mother Hubbard's Sports Pub is the River North neighborhood's "Town Square".

Thanks for stopping in John! We look forward to discussing our favorite steak joints on your next visit. Oh, and no hard feeling. OK?
