Try Fabulous Freddies. I usually get the Philly Wrap but today I got the Turkey Avocado wrap and that thing was lit, man.

The only drawback is you have to avoid getting shot

For white guys, that's not a problem. Then again, it's not really south side. Get down to 87th and it might be a different story. Heard about the place many times and have never tried it. Anything unique on the beer front?

My first stop is always White Castle... about 10 minutes from O'Hare.

That area was 'rough' when it was generally Polish.

Upton Sinclair neighborhood... and where Saul Alinsky got his start as an organizer.

More important is that you're not far from Shinnick's Irish Pub. Used to date a woman who was attending the Illinois Institute of Technology and we'd hang out there... as I remember, it has am amazing back bar. 38th and S. Union. Small place on the corner.

And one other thing... you're in White Sox territory.
