CHICAGO RECOMMENDATIONS

  1. Warmest Coat in the Whole Wide World ™
  2. Pancake House!!
    But duh
  3. Avec
    The brandade and chorizo medjool dates alone are worth the airfare.

  4. Big Bowl
    But only if you get the chicken teriyaki
  5. Cafecito
    If you're in the South Loop. It's a tiny Cuban place with the best coffee and best chicken sandwich in America (in my opinion and I've had them all)
  6. Caribou Coffee
    Ok not a total Chicago thing but they don't have them here and the city goes well with Caribou Coffee (second to Dunkin of course)
  7. Get cheap beer drunk to an 80s cover band with bros in Wrigleyville
    Oh wait
