The digit: 800. The number of degrees Fahrenheit the bar's pizza oven can reach.
This Lincoln Park bar includes "stadium" in its name because it guarantees everyone a prime view of the game, thanks to 18 big-screen TVs plastered to the walls and even the ceiling rafters. Half-pound angus burgers -- such as the B&B ($10) topped with brie, bacon, caramelized onions and horseradish sauce -- are popular, as is the Cuban sandwich ($8). Game day drink specials such as $4 pineapple upside-down shots, $4 Jager bombs and $3 mystery beers (the tap is labeled only with a question mark; order it and venture a guess) help wash down the hefty sandwiches and pizzas baked in the bar's wood- and gas-fired oven.
