Show Notes:
This trip was part of an epic 30+ dude bachelor party. I flew in a few days early to hit a few joints that have been on my Chicago hit list for far too long. I think you’ll be able to spot where the bachelor party over took my solo adventures. The Virgin Hotel flagship was more than an excellent place to lay my head before moving to the “House of dudes”. The restaurants I mention in the West Loop section are part of Paul Kahan’s delicious food dynasty. Chicago has become an awesome food destination. I highly recommend a visit on an empty stomach. Here’s my Foursquare hit list. If you’re looking for more options. look no further than my friends at The Infatuation. One more thing, YES, that was a shot for shot Snatch opening.
