CHICAGO

This page goes out to my favorite city I get to call home: CHICAGO. I get so many emails and direct messages about meeting up whenever y'all are on trips here or to share my favorite spots around the city. And to be honest, it's really hard to remember to put on pants most days, yet alone text/ email massive lists of my favorite lil city. So this page goes out to all of my favorite things to do, see, and (most importantly) EAT while exploring around the babe of a city. 

FOODS

Reno Chicago. My favorite restaurant in all of Chicago. Address: 2607 N Milwaukee Ave, Chicago, IL 60647.

Their cookies have healed my heart during the hardest days. Their wood fire pizzas are so so good I don't have enough happy words to say about them. But to be honest, their breakfast bagel sandwiches will make your heart melt. Super casual and they have a community table so if you just wanna go hang with the kindest employees and have a cup of coffee, it is totally welcomed. Such a big spot in my heart for this place.

Bang Bang Pie & Biscuits. Pie Coffee Biscuits. Address: 2051 N California Ave, Chicago, IL 60647. 

Seriously I take everyone here. I love bang bang SO MUCH. Pie and good comfort food that will leave you needing a nap after but feeling so satisfied. I love this place. There are two locations but my favorite one is the address I listed. 

Neighborhoods

Logan Square (my favorite ALWAYS). When I moved to Chicago for the first time back in April of 2014 I picked an extremely cheap random room for rent off of craigslist. I had no idea what I was doing or why I decided Chicago was going to be a good fit for me. But I moved in with a random Vietnamese family in Logan Square and was lonely but hopefully and literally spent anytime here in Chicago roaming around Logan. I love this little neighborhood so much. The small shops, the farmers market every Sunday. All the hipsters wearing whatever the heck they want to. I love Logan. And if you have some time and want to stay away from the tourist and craziness downtown, spend your afternoon here. There are dogs everywhere p.s. for all my dog lovers out there. I know you get it. Also really accessible by the blue line! Just hop off at the Logan Square stop.

Wicker Park. Wicker Park is a lot like Logan just a tad bit more boujee (personal opinion). There is tons to do, tons to eat, and TONS of cute amazing shopping spots. It's right off of the Blue line just get off at the Damen stop.
