Previously I traveled up here in April 2010, April 2011, and August 2012. Every trip has been SO different, but with each one I've seen a bit more of the city and surrounding areas. The only part that ever sucks about being here is that I inevitably don't have time to see every person I know who lives here...there are a lot of them!

I've been to Second City and seen the Cubs lose twice, eaten at Portillo's and Malnati's and Pizzeria Due and Chicago Oven Grinder and Chicago Cut and half a dozen other places I can't recall as well. I've been to bars (most of whose names I don't remember, mostly because I never kept track of them in the first place) and wandered a hell of a lot of the city, just taking it all in.
Thankfully I have friends who keep giving me reasons to come back. Now if only flight prices were a bit cheaper and I don't get another 3-hour delay coming or going... ;)
