If you’re from the Chicagoland-area, you’re familiar with the term “The Region” used to refer to anyone that isn’t from Chicago proper. Specifically, those of us from Northwest Indiana. I hate saying that I’m from The Region because it makes me feel like a townie and really? Who wants to be a townie?
So, I’m from Chicago. And that’s where I visited last weekend.
If you’re in Chicago, you’re kind of obligated to eat at Chicago Pizza and Oven Grinder Co. Best pizza in the city. Guaranteed. So good, in fact, that I had my wedding reception there and even now that I’m divorced I’d still shank someone for a pizza pot pie.
(And if you’re in Austin, you’re kind of obligated to eat at hopdoddy Burger Bar.)
Visiting home is exhausting.
