Where Do Illinois Sports Fans Enjoy Watching Their Favorite Teams?

I started to get curious about fans in Illinois. Since they are such big supporters, where do they enjoy watching the games? I've always felt that sports is a community. It's something you do with other people who have similar tastes. I believe the best way to enjoy it is with other enthusiasts. Maybe live at the actual game, at a party, or even in a bar.
