Grindr describes itself as "discreet" and "a simple app that uses your mobile device's location-based services to show you the guys closest to you who are also on Grindr." That pretty much sums it up as a hookup tool.
It's been around since 2009, but this year they've decided to hold the first-ever Grindr's Best of 2012 Awards, and a few of Chicago's shining stars made the cut.
Of note is 2012 Lakeview newcomer Wood, which got honors for "Best Place To Take a First Date." With former Alinea chef Ashlee Aubin at the helm as well as the popularity of the cocktail program, we can understand why they won.
See all the winners right here, which also includes longtime favorite night spot Sidetrack.
