Ok. I'm about 24 years old. I haven't gone out too much in the last two years. All my amigos have moved on. I'm going to move out, probably to the SW burbs because that's where I'm working right now. So what does a guy like me do for fun? What bars/club are good for the single dude like me? I can go to meetups to try to find friends.... But what places should I hit up? I live in the NW burbs right now, so I can go to CHicago anytime.

I don't know anything about you obviously, but the likelihood that you're gonna go to a bar or club at night and just meet new friends is pretty slim...girls will think you're trying to pick them up and guys will think you're weird or up in their business.

If work, school or other friends aren't helping you meet people, I'd suggest checking out web sites that help facilitate meeting people in Chicago (meetin.org, meetup.com, meetjoe.net, chicagosportandsocial.com, etc.), or go to street festivals and stuff like that during the day. Might also hit up bars that cover your favorite schools/sports teams, although I guess that's more for football and b-ball season. Good luck.

join as many Chicago Sport and Social club or Sportsmonster teams as you have time for. This is the best way for young pros to meet/make friends and have people to do things with.

Going to a bar by yourself to try and meet friends isn't a good strategy.
