friends, i'm going to chicago for a week tomorrow. i expect that most of my time will be filled with family obligations (the size of the family is a direct correlate to the quantity of obligations, and i have a loooot of relatives!). so, i'll probably be spending my time in various suburbs, at the homes of various aunties and cousins, but if you've got any recommendations, foodish or otherwise, for the windy city, i'd love to hear them -- hopefully i can squeeze in some city time.
* yes, i know, the real lyric to the song is 'hot town, summer in the city', but that's kind of weak, don't you think?
[thanks aphantos. for the photo of chicago's river east art college]
