O'Rourke's was probably the hippist watering hole in the city. With the influence of Roger Ebert, nationally known figures from the arts would mix with the locals in one of the friendliest venues I have known. On occasion Roger would climb on to the bar and launch into his best imitation of Al Jolson singing 'Mammy'. I still have a photo of I took of him in full cry. I only lived in Chicago for a brief period but still have fond memories of the city and O'Rourke's.
