Chicago has been home to me for the past five years. I still walk around snapping pics on my commute to work and it seems like my list of places to try is endless. Check out some of my current and all time favorite Chicago spots.

EAT + DRINK 

So hard to narrow this list down  

Girl and the Goat - All time favorite restaurant in Chicago. Just go! 

Big Star - Fun taco spot right in the heart of Wicker Park. Warning the margaritas are tasty but STRONG! 

Wasabi - Favorite ramen in the city. Order the brussle sprouts as an app. 

Lou Malnatis - This is a controversial choice because I actually prefer Peaquads for Chicago style pizza. Lou's has more locations though. 

Au Cheval - Best burger of your life. Expect a wait. Download the WaitTime app and chill at Lone Wolf next door.

Cafe Ba-Ba-Reeba! - Sangria, bacon wrapped dates and spicy potatoes! What more could you want? 

Blind Barber - choose the position of the site sidebar.

Heavy Feather - enable a fixed sidebar that will stay put while the site is scrolled. 

Fox Bar in Soho House - Bust through those barn style double doors like a star.

Beauty Bar - Covered in glitter and a giant disco ball in the back. 

Up & Up Robey Hotel - choose the position of the site sidebar.

Martinis at Gibsons - Right in the middle of the Viagra Triangle the people watching is worth it. 

Booze Box - Sushi + Cocktails 

Bavettes -
