National Museum of Mexican Art: If you want to learn more about the history of a proud people, check this Pilsen spot out. While you’re there, ask about why they don’t charge an admission fee. It’s a cool story to hear.
And of course, there’s plenty of great places eat around the South Side, and we don’t mess around when it comes to BBQ, chicken & waffles, and more.
North Side homies, what I am trying to say to you is don't rely on others to do the thinking for you. Come down here to see for yourself (not that we’re begging -- that’s not in our nature). I’m aware of the fact that some of you may take this letter as a knock on the North Side. That’s not the case. As Jay-Z once said,”It's not a dis song, it's just a real song. Feel me?” Pay us a visit and then let me know how you feel about us.
