I live about an hour and a half from Chicago. I have to admit that I'm not really a big city person, but I do love Chicago! The traffic does suck, but the public transportation is good. There are parks, beaches, shopping, two large airports, museums, festivals, good food, etc. The dog culture is great out there too. The summers are hot, but nothing like Florida. The winters do suck, but I wouldn't think it would be much worse than northeastern winters, and the spring and fall are beautiful.

I didn't care for Gino's. It was too.... tomato-y, if my memory is correct. For my tastes at least.
My sister really wanted to get us to try more pizza places, but after we had Giordanos there was just no way we were going to turn it down in order to try something new lol. We have some good pizza places in MN but nothing like that!

What a shock that a thread about Chicago has a pizza discussion inside of it.

I don't have any thing exciting to add, just another vote for Chicago love. I lived there for a year and I go there every year for the big hair show. If I was interested in living in this area of the country much longer I'd probably move to Chicago.
