It's really damn cold outside. Welcome to winter in Chicago.
It's cold, it's wet and it's the prettiest time of year to go downtown.
I live in one of the greatest cities in the world, and I don't spend nearly enough time enjoying it. That's why I decided I'm going to celebrate my new gig at Myspace (Yea, I told you! Big!) by going to the city.
I think I'll do the touristy thing, finish my Christmas shopping and maybe meet a French guy for lunch.
I'm almost looking forward to some time in Chicago by myself. The problem? It's really flipping expensive. I have serious problems paying out the nose for something I can find cheaper in the suburbs, but on the same token I love going downtown.
Is it possible to do bargain shopping in downtown Chicago without stealing anything?
