Chicago's one of the most unique cities on the planet -- world-class culture mixed with a population that's generally damn friendly and always eager to try a monstrously spectacular new cheeseburger. So we rounded up 12 things you can only do in this fair town of ours. Make the most of every moment you live here and try to do all of them at least once, and some of them at least once a week.
Look at all these beautiful skyscrapers! What a well-planned city, and all we had to do was torch our entire downtown... Anyway, take one of these and you'll pick up so many facts you'll forget them all and gladly take another tour.
It's a widely accepted fact that if your town's river isn't properly dyed, St. Patrick won't leave a bottle opener under your pillow.

Sheffield and Waveland -- you couldn't have a better view of the game if you were Gary Sheffield, or Tim... Wavelandfield. Granted those video boards might obstruct things, but we'll just party right through that, because we're winners and winners don't quit.
Did you know that, before Hollywood, Chicago was a major silent film production hub, and home to stars such as Charlie Chaplin? Who knows, maybe the people who love Movieoke are actually better at dialogue than him.
