Published On 03/11/2015 Published On 03/11/2015

Wait, what the hell is that?!? Oh right, the sun. Now that temperatures have approached a slightly more human level, it’s time to get out and explore the city. And by "explore the city" we mean "eat the best burger within a 10-minute walk of EVERY SINGLE STOP on the CTA, using the map we created to detail exactly that."
