So my jerk friend is leaving for New York and I decided to make her a bucket list of my favorite things and places in Chicago. If you have any to add, throw it on the pyre.
Nicki Eisenrich’s Bucket List (and also a list of things to do in Chicago for newcomers) in No Particular Order:
Garfield Park Conservatory Osaka Garden in Hyde Park Museum of Science and Industry Shedd Aquarium Calumet Fishery Rainbow Cone Shit Fountain Cultural Center Big Monster Toys Too Much Light Makes The Baby Go Blind Paper Machete The Pedway Walk System Promontory Point at Burnham Park Ba’hai Temple Sultan's falafel sandwich Home Alone House Leaning Tower of Niles Salonathon CYSK Dinner Diner on Irving Park 2nd Friday Art Crawl in Pilsen Punchhouse Heavy Feather Skylark Contemporary Gallery, Miniature Room and Paperweight Collection at Art Institute Native American exhibit at Field Museum 3rd Thursday Adler After Dark Frank Lloyd Wright Robie House Free Mondays at Empty Bottle King’s Spa Marie’s Packaged Goods Santa Train Union Station Ceiling Woolly Mammoth Antiques, Oddities & Resale Bubbly Creek Intuit Outsider Art Museum Graceland Cemetary The Boring Store at 826CHi Merz Apothecary American Science and Surplus The Bunny Hutch Music box
