  1. Great Post! Chicago does have a lot to offer in the way of entertainment. You can find live music clubs featuring almost any kind of music. Every neighborhood has it’s own feel and some have distinctive architecture, even if the architect wasn’t famous you can figure out what section of the city your just by looking around… I just recently blogged about my favorite deep dish place, and Chicago’s restaurants in general are on par with any other city in the world…
