I was sorry to see Catchers close. That was my pregame and postgame stop for a number of years. You could always find parking there and it was hard to beat $1 pint drafts. Some gangbangers started to hang out there in its last couple years, but I never had a problem there, and closed the played fairly regularly in the summer. A Connie's delivery guy would often bring in a pizza after his shift. Unbelievably, bluesman Linsey Alexander would play Catchers regularly and there wouldn't even be a cover charge.

Now I park for free on Halsted south of 36th where there are no meters. It's a bit of a walk, but I refuse to pay for parking.
