  1. Go on an all out vacation to Vegas with your friends
  2. Be single for at least 6 months
  3. Buy something big and spoil yourself

I don’t have time to post the rest of my list this morning, but I’m pretty interested to read all of your lists!

10 Places You’d Take a Tourist to See in Your Hometown

Monday, March 17th, 2008

I like doing this one every now and then…this time around, try to think of unusual places - for example, I live in Chicago, so everyone’s going to want to go to the Sears Tower, but what are the places people might not know about?

  1. Whirlyball - a combination of bumper cars, lacrosse and basketball WITH BEER!
  2. Late night gyros in Greektown
  3. Bowling at Southport Lanes (they have pinboys that reset the pins, and if you roll a dollar in your ball, they knock over the pins for you)
  4. The Harold Washington Library - 10 floors of book nerd awesomeness
  5. Movies in the Park - They play movies at Grant Park during the summertime - pack a picnic basket, blanket and pillows and it’s a perfect night
  6. Go on a Ghost Tour- visit a bunch of haunted spots sin the Chicago area - it’s not a coincidence that half of them are at bars!
  7. Rather than go to the Hancock Observatory for $12, the Signature Lounge and Bar is one floor down and a drink is $9
  8. The Baton Show Lounge - Men dressed as women making me feel manly with their womanliness. Good times!
  9. CafeIberico - My favorite restaurant to bring out of towners, not because it has typical Chicago food, but because it’s tasty Spanish food, good drinks, and a pretty good deal
  10. On the rocks by Loyola University - a great place to hang out and listen to the lake
