As part of Spike TV's new series Bar Rescue (a drinker's Kitchen Nightmares), a crew overhauled Blue Frog 22 into The Local: the ostensible home of "Chicago's best burgers and beer." With a draft list of a half-dozen Goose Island and Half Acre beers and some bizarre Chicago-related quotations hung as posters on the wall, this place evokes about as much city pride as the monument pictured on its menu, Navy Pier. Thankfully, Blue Frog's Tuesday–Saturday karaoke is sticking around.
