If you do end up looking outside of the city like north shore I wouldn’t go too far north. My husband has an hour and a half commute on the train! And I did forget to mention but saw someone else did that metra is expensive. Driving in the city is miserable and to be avoided if at all possible for your commute. Did Read more

Yeah, the loop you definitely get less for your money, and there is no way in hell you’ll have a yard. If you can find/afford a unit in an M. Fishman building, they’re dog friendly and have nice amenities, but you WILL be a gentrifier. Read more

Best place to take your dog in all of Chicago - Parson’s Chicken and Fish. They have a giant patio and allow dogs. In the fall, they build a fire and have spiked cider. In the summer, they have booze slushies.

No problem! Yeah, loop would be at the top. I think you’d be able to find something that includes parking for 1500, but it might be a studio. Chicago apartments typically do not come with parking or laundry, as you probably already guessed. And laundry in the building also isn’t assumed, so just be aware of that. With Read more

I love Ravenswood/Lincoln Square, which I saw you mentioned below. I live in Logan Square and have lived in Lakeview/Roscoe Village (off Paulina brown line), Wicker Park and Ukrainian Village as well. Both Wicker Park and Ukrainian Village are off the blue line, although you will probably end up a 15 min walk from a Read more

What kind of neighborhood would you like? I live on the NW side along the blue line - and I really like it (Logan Square, to be specific). My neighborhood is rapidly hypergentrifying though - and getting quite spendy. However, there is ton to do here — great food, great festivals, nice art scene - and there is a Read more

Disclaimer: I’m a former Chicagoan and have only lived on the north side, so others may have better and more up to date info. If parking and walking your dog is important, the neighborhoods around the brown and blue line are mostly pretty residential, and street parking isn’t terrible (though, the rents might be). The Read more

Why don’t you want to live in the loop? With that budget you could afford it. And come winter you’ll want to be as close to the office as possible. 15 mins doesn’t sound like much but when those winds get going it’s unbearable. I’ve had to turn around and take a breather many times because it just punches the air out Read more

Can’t wait for Natasha Vargas-Cooper to not really bother research the story then do a snarky, irritating ‘expose’ where she softballs/fails to properly question a crucial witness.

My husband regularly picks up extra biscuits from Bojangles and Hardees to give to the homeless men near his work. Swoon!

I’ve been a Gilly since episode 1, and I only downloaded it because their cover photo made me laugh. I cannot wait for them to do Bunhead Bros!

Got it. I would think most of the time those cases the culprit is food poisoning.
