Time Out says

Incoming planes pass startlingly close to Mr. C's, a welcoming dive a block from Midway Airport. It's been a tavern since the mid-’40s, "back when the neighborhood was mostly prairie," says owner Andrew Chilmon, and vintage airport photos hang on the wall, along with a stuffed marlin from one of the Chilmon's fishing trips. By day, the bar draws carpenters and other tradesmen; at night, airline crew members and flight attendants show up. And given the shabby surroundings, there's a respectable selection of bottled beers, including Wild Blueberrylager ($4).
