I thought I could resist your call and skip out on what’s become my annual trek to America’s Best Big City.
I really couldn’t care less about Lollapalooza or the music this year. That’s just an added bonus. Instead, I’m coming to see you, Chicago, and your skyline, your stores, your people. I hope to see old friends, maybe make some new ones.
And, if all else fails, by god, I’ll have some pizza and wings at Excelsior.
That alone (well, that and a cupcake at the Hershey store) is worth the trip.
