Grant Martin

Chicago Lake Shore Path

A jog or bike down the Lake Shore Path is a great way to get your blood flowing in the morning.

Melrose Restaurant

Free banana with every meal!

Urban Remains

Urban Remains has a broad spectrum of architectural elements from Chicago's history all up for sale. Tables, light fixtures, old cabinets, you name it.

Millennium Park

It's modern design meets the Chicago skyline meets Grant Park.

Threadless Store

Home of the famous Threadless t-shirt brand. The belly of the beast.

bow truss

The newest sexiest roaster in the city. Unbeatable coffee.

Longman & Eagle

Amazing food, friendly staff, massive whiskey selection and a new Michelin star.

Big Star

Best Tacos in the city, and right in the heart of the action.

The Whistler

Live music, excellent cocktails, unpretentious crowd. Pretty hard to mess this one up.

I would stay at: Waldorf Astoria Chicago

Luxuriant, clean, beautiful hotel. My favorite in the city.
