    Go to Portillos and get a large italian beef, dipped, and with hot peppers. It has more meat than a german bukkake porn vid

    Lol'd at the title.

    According to Bill Burr there's some kind of drum emporium megastore where they have everything related to drums/drumming there. There's a studio too for $15/hr.

    Also Trax records was based in chicago..the first label to put out house music.

    Just hop on a train or bus and go explore. Blue line can get sketchy but you said you were a street car so you'll be fine. I've been all over that city solo and I'm still here.

    Go to the Ryan Expy. and Halsted Street area from 59th to 67th. You can just take the bus out there and enjoy yourself all day. I think you'd like it OP.

    I had the time of my life there. Rekindled an old flame and now hoping to move by summer of next year.

    John Hancock center is a must.

    Shedd aquarium at night

    Lou minatis grab the original pizza and some mozzarella sticks

    Johnnys hot dogs for an authentic hot dog.

    Subterranean is a dope Jamaican club/bar . If you feel uncomfortable around black people then probably not for you. I had fun but got kicked out because they said I looked like a gang member :crying

    Nacional 27 is a Latin/Mexican restaurant that turns into a club at night. Very dope and brings out good looking women.

    Harold's chicken is good, but I don't know about best in the world. I still prefer roscoes over them.

    I'm by no means an expert but those are the places that made me love Chicago.

    one thing I wanted to add, coming from LA where racial tensions are always high and stupid, Chicago was kind of a shock to me, its extremely segregated, I almost felt awkward at times breaking the norm. id go into a bar and be the only non-black person. went to a different bar, and was the only non-white person. being from los angeles the concept of how segregated everyone in Chicago is blows my mind. they literally all keep to their own neighborhoods . I didn't see one Asian person the entire time I was there and it freaked me out :rollin
