Fascinating. I'd been told before that the bar was, in fact, Sportsmen's Inn (now Sporty's Pub and Grill) in SE Como. I'll verify that and let you know.

Nevermind. I have the book, I just hadn't read it yet. You are correct. The former owner of Sporty's who thought it was his bar (then, I believe, known as Sportsmen's Inn) was wrong.

Last comment, I promise. The bar in question would've been on 4th St N just North of Plymouth Ave. Between that and the fact that the photo in the book, on further comparison, is not the same building as Stand-Up Frank's (Now Mr. Steven's Snuggery), I conclude that the actual Sportsman's Retreat building was torn down due to construction of I94.
