I grew up in La Grange, a western suburb and have been a lifelong fan of all things Chicago. I am a huge Bulls fan, despite the fact that their management has made quite a few poor choices recently (cough cough the Jimmy Butler trade cough). But I continue to watch and Bull-ieve that we can soon return to the glory of the 90s.
I am one of the few bloggers on DeBlogs that won’t mention their love for food in their introductory blog because I am an incredibly picky eater with food allergies. So if you are looking to hear about Chicago style pizza hot spots, look to someone else. But if you’re sick of hearing the debate between Giordano’s and Lou Malnati’s, read on!
Though I can’t speak much about Chicago restaurants, I can certainly make up for it by sharing my Intel on Chicago’s music venues. A few of my favorites are Northerly Island and Aragon Ballroom, but I’ll save those details for a future blog. I absolutely love going to concerts and that is where I spend most of my money.
Luckily, I have money to spend thanks to my many on-campus jobs as a Chicago Quarter Mentor, writing tutor at the UCWbL, and of course blogger with DeBlogs. I also work at the local shop, Monograms on Webster and as a Lincoln Park nanny (I told you I like to spend a lot of time with kids!).
Well, that’s me! I hope you continue to follow my posts to learn more about me, Chicago, and of course DePaul!
