Food Store with Animal Skulls, Bear Skin

Czimer's Game and Seafood is probably the only grocery store in the Chicago area where a dead bear glares at you over the freezer section. Czimer's has been selling out-of-the-ordinary food items for a century. Got a hankering for a tenderloin of alpaca? Are you hungry for a roast of yak? Lusting for some beaver burger? Then Czimer's is your go-to place. If you are vegetarian or vegan, you'll probably want to steer clear.

For a sliding fee Czimer's will also turn your kill into everything from steaks to snack sticks, and bleach the skull for your later use as a decoration or Halloween prop.
