Hi.

Welcome to my blog, where I document my adventures. I hope you have a nice stay!

Chicago bucket list

As referenced in a previous post, I've done a pretty good job of touristing in my own city. For example, I've done a lot of these - but not all!  And so I am compiling my own Chicago bucket list as someone who has lived here for 14 years.

So, in no particular order or ranking and without further ado, my list.

  1. See a movie at Logan Theatre. DONE! Dunkirk
  2. Go bowling at Diversey River Bowl.
  3. Spend an evening at the Green Mill Pub , or just have one drink and listen to a bit of music because they shush you if you talk and I do not like to be shushed, even for music. That is the standalone reason why I hold out on this place and I live down the street from it. Stepping off of my soapbox now.
  4. Ride the new Ferris Wheel at Navy Pier - because I avoid that place like the plague, usually, but the Ferris Wheel is new.
  5. Go to Brew at the Zoo or Halloween nights at the Zoo.
  6. Hike and see the waterfalls at Starved Rock, this is not technically in Chicago but a right of passage for all Chicagoans.
  7. Finally set foot in the Bahai'i Temple, I ran by it in a blizzard one fine January day on a 20 mile run but I've never been inside.
  8. Go to Kuma's Corner for their burgers, the original location.
  9. Girl and the Goat (omg I can't believe I've never been here).
  10. Skate the ribbon at the new Maggie Daley park, will have to wait for cold weather for that.
  11. Eat at Chicago Pizza Oven and Grinder Co (another of those what is wrong with me, why haven't I been here yet places).
  12. Go to City Winery.
  13. Visit  the Garfield Park Conservatory. 
  14. Run or walk the 606.
  15. See a show at Thalia Hall.
  16. Go to a Bulls game (the one professional team I've yet to see live).
  17. Water taxi to Chinatown for dinner or brunch.
  18. Visit Myopic Books.
  19. See as many concerts as possible before I leave .
  20. Eat brunch at Publican at least a couple of times before I move.

This list could keep growing...
