Throughout the summer, our five trusty beer studs--Mitch, Dan, Jered, Andy and Ray--have reviewed the city's best beer gardens and reported their weekly exploits here and in RedEye. They charmed us with their lady-lassoing (like when Jered pounced on the slowest of the herd and got digits at Mystic Celt and with their mischief (Ray's photo booth incident at Village Tap comes to mind).

With their last review just around the corner, we need you to vote on which Beer Garden Guy is your favorite. Will it be Dan "Ladies' Man" Sherman? Or Andy "I'll eat anything that isn't nailed down" Margulies? Read their bios, including their plea for your vote, and cast your ballot. The winner will be crowned in the Aug. 6 RedEye.

Name: Dan Sherman
Age: 25 physically, 18 mentally
Profession: Spin doctor by day, good-time guy extraordinaire by night.
Neighborhood: Close enough to the Wiener Circle that I constantly hear "Gimmie a f*%@#'n char dog now!!"
Originally from: Battle Creek, Mich. (Cereal City), home of such cultural icons as Tony the Tiger and those three Rice Krispies midgets.
Why I want to review beer gardens: Isn't this the perfect job? Drinking outside on Chicago summer nights, scopin' the ladies and hanging with the fellas. Who am I trying to kid? It's pure, shameless self-promotion.
Favorite beer: Magic Hat #9. It's brewed in Burlington, Vermont, and not available in Chicago. I always seem to want what I can't have.
Favorite beer garden: Wrigley Field, Chicago's biggest beer garden. Cold beer, beautiful people and corked bats. Just be careful of foul balls on hot days.
Worst beer garden moment: I went home alone once...ONCE.
Favorite pickup line: "Hi. Wait, come back!!!"
Why you should vote for me: I'll let you borrow my beer goggles for a night.

Name: Jered Thorp
Age: 24
Profession: PR/chef at Taco Burrito Palace #2
Neighborhood: Westside Wrightwood
Originally from: Wapella, Ill. No, it is not a suburb. It is a small town between Bloomington and Decatur. Nothing still? It is south of I-80...well south.
Why I want to review beer gardens: To educate the people about the importance of a healthy social life, while maintaining high levels of professionalism and sophistication. And to get blitzed.
