I hear the subway in Chicago is really nasty. My friend lived there for 4 years, and told me that the cleanliness of the DC subway we always grew up on was impeccable compared to Chicago.
Whirlyball sounds like definite fun to me. Especially the idea of no rape involved.
I love New York AND Chicago, and I'm wondering why no one has brought Whirlyball here yet, because it would go over in a BIG way.
Hey Sarah, I'm going to Chicago for the first time on Wed with three other girls (We're flying from the Salty Lake City) and was wondering if you or your readers had any cool suggestions on places to hit up... bars, clubs, museums... We'll be there 4 days.
Like David Cross says, I don't want to get in the car and ask the taxi driver "Take me to where the kids drink" and end up at TGI Fridays ... so if you know of anything, you might be able to save me from this scenario.
What part of Chicago do Tony and his wife live in? What neighborhood, I mean?
What a great bunch of friends to go there and surprise him! Some of my closest friends have lived or are still living in Chicago. Holy cripes the crazy-ass drunken times I've had there. Glad you enjoyed your trip!
Love the lacrosse quote, by the way.
Um, it wouldn't have been nearly as much fun without you! That and no one else would have bothered to document it so well.
It's amazing that after surprise 3 or 4 that he continued to be surprised. And that after a few he wasn't a paranoid wreck waiting for the next tackle.
There is something wrong with this sentence, Sarah Brown!
"Chicago is my #1 city for my friends move to, if they can’t move to New York."
Fix it before someone else sees it!
Thank you, Mr. Lewis!
i've lived in/near chicago all my life and i completely agree.
