Number one on Chicago's reggae charts is the Wild Hare, in the shadow of Wrigley Field. After 20 years in business (an eternity in the nightclub world), this spot has kept up with the times by adding a state-of-the-art sound and video systems. Owner Zeleke Gessesse, who has toured with Ziggy Marley and the Melody Makers, books top acts such as Burning Spear and Yellow Man; he also nurtures local talent. With a Red Stripe in hand, you might even forget that it's 20 degrees outside.
