Or ... How to Travel Without Turning Into a Lame Tourist

Best place for nightlife

"Sonotheque or Visionz on the South Side. Thursday nights are hosted by Raymond Ramzy at Visionz. See who the DJs and promoters are. The best and hardest working DJs in the city are Twilite Tone, Mark Fulla Flava, Andre Hatchett, Timbuck2, DJinc, and DJ Question. They play pop and top 40, but they also play music with eclectic cutting-edge sounds, house, and hip-hop to give you a fun, unpredictable dance experience."

"There's a café on the South Side in Bronzeville that is great; it's called Munchies, Leonas, Tropical Jerk Chicken on 79th in King Drive, Tamarind for sushi in the South Loop, and Sweet Potatoes Café in Bronzeville on 47th Street."

Best shopping

"I like to shop in Wicker Park at little boutiques because you get original stuff for great prices."

Places to avoid

"In Chicago it's not the place, it's usually the promoter or management that shape your experience."

Places you must see

"Lake Shore Drive at night, the skyline, the Magnificent Mile, just the overall beauty of the city and the urban, ghetto neighborhoods. I enjoy Oak Park, the suburb, in terms of diversity of people and the beautiful trees. Try the Trolley Tour of the five Bronzeville Art Galleries. Also, go to the Chicago Cultural Center and use it is as info on sub- and mainstream culture to guide you through Chicago."
