"Chicagokayplayers (recommendations) "


  

          

Doing a lil college reunion with some of my boys from December 9th-13th. Most likely doing an Air Bnb, so any recommendations on neighborhoods for late 20s POC to stay in, places to check out, eat, etc. would be appreciated!

I'm a big pizza fan & love deep dish (from Shakeys to Cheeseboard in CA) but never been to Chicago so really looking forward to trying that. Any spots I should check for the best pizza?

Airbnb? I'd say Wicker Park, Logan Square, Uptown or East Rogers Park. Wicker and Logan Square are more hipster. Uptown and Rogers Park are a bit more hood, but not necessarily ghetto.

Art of Pizza is a cool spot. Pizano's on State Street is cool. Of course there's the tourist spots like Gino's East and Giordano's. And Lou Malnati's. L'Patron is a good spot for tacos and such.

Emporium is cool, if you like video games and/or beers. Dusty Groove is good for buying music and vinyl. The Wild Hare and The Promontory are cool music venues, but on opposite sides of town.

Walking Michigan Avenue in the wintertime is pretty dope. The Water Tower, Nordstrom, the Apple Store, it all looks so dope at night.

Common, De La Soul, Erykah Badu and Musiq Soulchild at the Wintrust Arena.

Tickets ain't cheap, but that lineup is epic.

Pizza:
Depends on what side of town you're on, but here's some of my favorites:

Giordano's
Home Run Inn
Pequod's
Italian Fiesta
Lou Malnati's get a lot of love, but I'm not a big fan. It's ok, though.

Clubs/Bars:

Promontory (good place to see a show, but the staff sucks.)
Thalia Hall/Punch House
Harbee's (mostly DJ's)
The Whistler (cheap drinks!)
Subterranean (depends on the night. It can go from 'awesome' to 'suck' in a hurry)
Metro/SmartBar
Crocodile (kinda sucks, but it's always packed. Your level of tolerance depends on your age)
Revolution Brewery (craft beers and all that kinda stuff)
Emporium (arcade games and booze. Two locations)

Records/CD's:

Reckless Records (the Wicker Pk one is awesome)
Dusty Groove. Best record store in Chicago, period.
606 Records
K-Starke Records
Hyde Park records
Gramaphone Records



___________

Back again for the first time.
