Johnny's IceHouse

1350 W. Madison

312-226-5555 or johnnysicehouse.com

When I started dating a guy who played league hockey at Johnny's IceHouse in the West Loop I resisted going to games for fear of being bored and cold. But then my single girlfriends began to insist. Johnny's has leagues for all skill levels, from novice to weekend warrior to former pro, but the more competitive games are played on Friday nights and Sunday afternoons. Admission is 100 percent cheaper than it is for the professional action down the street at the United Center, and at that price you can afford the frozen pizza and drinks in the (warm) bar overlooking the ice. One night we even did shots of Jagermeister with a group of players nursing bruised egos, along with the split lips and black eyes they got when a controversial call helped them lose.
