Anonymous said: im going to be in chicago for riot fest soon and i was wondering if you had any recommendations for hangout or rooftops or bars etc. thanks!
hi! i have keys to a roof in chicago (the one i just posted and have posted photos of for years) and they are currently held by two friends who are there. come off anon and i might be able to help you with that. maybe. ummmm other than that i would suggest rooftop parking garages- there is a home depot in lincoln park if you go to the top they sell plants and it’s an alright view as well. as far as bars- empty bottle in logan square, there may be some after shows and also they have a photo booth, or rose’s (on diversey i think) is a funny bar because it looks like a grandma’s basement. i honestly didn’t go out too much in chicago, i was underage the first time living there and only used a fake ID to go to shows, then last year i lived in little village which is far south. when i visited last month i went to rainbow room which was cute and had really cheap drinks (and a photobooth) and slippery slope, which you have to wait in line for but u can get buck wild as shit if you are into that. go to uptown and get bahn mi and the bird sanctuary up there is the best view of the city, and pretty much any beach! fullerton beach is gonna be the easiest to get to from riot fest because you can take the fullerton bus all the way there. also get pizza at santullos and go to quimby’s for zines. my brain is fresh with suggestions because i actually just made a list for a friend visiting for the first time as well xoxoxoxoxo
