An owl’right experience at The Owl

The Owl is a new bar at 2521 N. Milwaukee Ave. in Logan Square. I saw the announcement on Thrillist a few weeks ago and was immediately interested in checking it out (I have an owl “thing”). So, I met a friend for happy hour, but as it happens, the bar doesn’t open until 7:00…
