My Kind Of Town

by gwolinetz on July 22nd, 2008

Who the hell’s been keeping me away from Chicago for this long? Sweet Jewish god, this place is really friggin’ great.

It’s a cleaner, more compact version of New York with nicer people. Even though I’m on the record saying that New Yorkers don’t get enough credit for being nice, if not a little gruff, the people here are so friendly. And not in an uncomfortable or sexual way either. Just regular nice.

Last night, I had a great meal at a local steakhouse. Tonight, I’m off to US Cellular Field (which I understand is surround mostly by crack houses) to watch the White Sox of Chicago take on the Rangers of Texas. The Cubs of Chicago are out of town or I would have headed up to Wrigley Field (which I understand is surrounded by yuppies).

Hey, why not buy my book? It would make a great gift for your graduate or perhaps your best friend who really likes pop culture or maybe even that girl from the mini-mart that you clumsily flirt with when you purchase cat food. All of those people would enjoy it.

    It’s the midwest – of course people are friendly! That’s how we ROLL!

    Yes, though it’s a little off-putting at first. I have the New York suspicion that people are being nice because they want to rob me or something.
