On a bad day in a big city, the little things that go with living shoulder-to-shoulder with a few million people wear us down. But the special pleasures of urban life have a way of keeping us out of the suburbs -- and thankful, even, for every second of stress. The field of daffodilsin the park on a fine spring day. The perfect little black dress that you find for half price. The markets -- so fabulously well stocked that you can cook any recipe without resorting to mail-order catalogs. The way you can sometimes turn a corner and discover a whole new world, so foreign you can hardly believe you're less than a mile from home. The never-ending wealth of possibilities and opportunities.
If you know where to find it all, the city cannot defeat you. With knowledge comes power. That's why Fodor's has prepared this book. It will put phone numbers at your fingertips. It'll take you to new places and remind you of those you've forgotten. It's the ultimate urban companion -- and, we hope, your new best friend in the city.
It's the citywise shopaholic who always knows where to find something, no matter how obscure. We've made a concerted effort to bring hundreds of great shops to your attention, so that you'll never be at a loss, whether you need a perfect birthday present for a perfect friend or some obscure craft items to make Halloween costumes for your kids.
It's the restaurant know-it-all who's full of ideas for every occasion -- you know, the one who wouldn't even have stopped at the aforementioned restaurant, because he knows the food is boring, the wait staff is rude, and they always overbook. In this book we'll steer you around the corner, to a perfect little restaurant with five tables, a fireplace, and a chef on her way up.
It's a hip barfly buddy who can give you advice when you need a charming nook, not too noisy, to take a new friend after work. Among the dozens of bars and night spots in this book, you're bound to find something that strikes the right note.
It's the sagest arts maven you know, the one who always has the scoop on what's on that's worthwhile on any given night. In these pages, you'll find dozens of concert venues and arts organizations.
It's also the city whiz who knows how to get where you're going, wherever you are.
It's the best map guide on the shelves, and it puts all the city in your briefcase or your bookshelf.
Stick with us. We'll lay out all the options for your leisure time -- and gently nudge you away from the duds -- so that you can enjoy the metropolitan living experience that makes Chicago worthwhile.
