A dive to end all dives, Rossi’s opens at 7 a.m. for those who want to get their drink on before, or in lieu of, heading to work in the nearby Loop. There are windows, but there is little sunshine. Rossi’s is a packaged goods store (a.k.a. a slashie), convenient for extending festivities off-premise.
THE DRINK TO DRINK: Makers on the rocks, PBR chaser
KNOW BEFORE YOU GO: There’s no food, but you can stumble next door between rounds for a slice.
