CHICAGO - The sign outside reads, "Welcome to the Northwoods."
But even if this looks like a Shawano supper club, this is Chicago. Will's Northwoods Inn is a Packer fan haven in the heart of the city.
"We've gotten all kinds of calls from Wisconsin. People want to drive down. They want to come to this crazy Packer bar in Chicago," said manager Kevin Kruse.
Milwaukee native Tim Lecher says there's nowhere else he'd watch Sunday's game.
"I'm debating whether to camp outside the door or if I have to hide in the bar overnight. Anything to get a table," he said.
You'll even find Bears and Packers fans drinking side by side. Bears fan Tom and Packers fan Greg say they can co-exist peacefully.
"We have a lot of respect for our northern Packer fan friends," Tom said.
Still, you won't find him or any other Bears fan at Will's on Sunday.
