Chicago

“For me, I love sweet home Chicago. It’s already a deeply cool city with some of my favorite restaurants, museums, clubs and theatre companies, and during the summer, the weather is great, there are terrific beaches and outdoor festivals and the city has an underrated music scene that gets to shine. Go get wet in the fountains by the art institute, take a pic under the bean and try the Cacio e Pepe at RPM and thank me later.

(My quick picks: Restaurants: Sunda, RPM; Museums: Art institute, Shedd; Clubs: Underground; Theatre: Second City, Steppenwolf)” – Adam Richman, Fandemonium
