"The Woodlawn Tap, better known simply as "Jimmy's" because of the legendary barkeep that owned it for a half century, busily caters to students, professors and even Nobel Peace prize winners from the University of Chicago with equal vigor as to neighborhood residents, tradesmen and barstool philosophers from the School of Hard Knocks, of all races and economic solvencies. Even the inebriate poet, Dylan Thomas, is said to have whet his whistle on three separate occasions at the Woodlawn Tap (on the same day)." -chibarproject.org
