Listen, Chicago is a big-ass city with countless bars, restaurants, and hotels. If you give us an address, we’ll be happy to point you in the right direction, and if you’re visiting from another country, we’ll probably stop and look up the info for you. But seriously -- don’t get frustrated with us if we don’t have an answer for "it's an Italian restaurant Downtown that starts with an 'M.'"
“Chicagoans must be really fat”
Contrary to what you may have gleaned via Saturday Night Live skits and episodes of Mike & Molly, Chicagoans are (gasp!) pretty average city-dwellers. We may have a penchant for terribly unhealthy food, but we balance it out by spending plenty of time outdoors and walking way, wayyy more than most Americans. In fact, Chicago is probably one of the few places in America you’ll still find people out jogging in below-freezing temps.
