Food!: Call me a simpleton, but I like casual American fare, and am
quite happy with the food at Chris and Rob's, Matt's Bar, Legends,
Longfellow Grill, The Depot, or Mickey's Dinner Car.
I have take out from Fresh Wok, all of the time, love this place.
Love Famous Daves in Uptown, love their brisket... Steakhouses
downtown are always good in my book. Pizza Luce or Parkway Pizza is
always good. I love the salad counter at Lund's have lived off that
Love me some sweets, A Baker's Wife is my favorite place and
happens to only be about a mile away!
I really love going on vacation, even more so to Chicago just for
the food alone: Gino's Pizza East is the shit, the Cheesecake
Factory at John Hancock is kickass, and I just found this super
awesome little place called Mindy’s Hot Chocolate in Wicker Park.
Not to forget the cup cakes from More in Near North.
TV: The West Wing, The Newsroom, Studio 60(picking up on the Aaron
Sorkin thing!), Shameless, Dexter, Californication, The Job, Modern
Marvels, The Big Bang Theory, The Mentalist, Veronica Mars, and
Whitney to name just a few of the best.
Movies: Office Space, Friends with Benefits, The Social Network,
Save the Last Dance, 500 Days of Summer, In the Land of Women,
McLintock, Hellfighters, and Rushmore.
Music, is simply 90s pop and modern day indie with a strong dose of
local music love.
