Directly adjacent from Gap Outlet, that wonderland of polos and flip-flops, is Crown Liquors, where you’ll find a perfectly adequate tap list, attentive staff and a lovely little patio to spend thirty-five increasingly uncomfortable minutes with your ex, well, months before you’re emotionally prepared to do so. On the patio, tables are well-spaced, so the people around you won’t hear your voice break when you ask your ex how they seem to be doing so well. Being conveniently located at the intersection of Milwaukee, Kimball and Diversey means that when you unlock your bikes and say your last goodbyes, you can rest assured that you won’t be going in the same direction.
