Big Star
A star is born. The old Pontiac Café in Wicker Park was transformed into a new hotspot. Behind the celebrated newcomer Big Star stands the team revolving around Paul Kahan who's in charge of gastronomic icons including the Publican and Blackbird. The styling is nothing special. You are sitting on long and untreated wooden benches - just like at an outside beer festivity - and above you'll see garlands with light bulbs resembling those seen at funfairs. But this very country style is what creates the comfort. You also have to plan in a lot of time. The queues are long, the seats are rare because the Big Star is always packed. But patience will pay off, as many say: they serve the best tacos in town. On top of the culinary must haves are the tacos filled with pork belly and tomato-guajillo-chili sauce, or those with lamb shoulder and cream cheese. No convenience products but skilfully prepared, just like the tortillas and tostadas. The list of tequila and whiskey impresses, too.

Modern Home Tours
Let's be honest: a luxurious mansion in Chicago including the brightly lit living room, ambitiously hidden behind a curtain - it has a ring to it. And you want to see more: what do these people sit on while watching TV? How have they painted their walls and which sculptures and art works have they put into their houses? These questions must also have occupied Matt Swinney and James Leasure - so they founded Modern Home Tours to find answers. Matt and James love everything contemporary in all forms imaginable - modern design, modern architecture, modern living. That's also their approach when selecting houses for their tour: new ways of building and materials, new methods to address the common challenges of daily domestic life. It's also important to them that the visited properties are inhabited by locals and built by local architectures. With their Modern Home Tour the two travel through the whole of North America.

Optimo Hats
Hats. A whole store full of hats. Panama hats, straw hats, felt hats. Hats that would have been worn by Humphrey Bogart, and hats that Justin Timberlake would make trendy again. If you have never thought about purchasing an elegant piece of headgear, you'll give in to this temptation now. Behind the counter you can see the tools made of wood and steel that tell a story of craftsmanship that runs through many generations. If you're particularly lucky you might even be able to watch the master working on the felt of a hat in order to give it the right shine, ironing the brim to give the right shape, or trimming it with a brush for display. If you won't decide to buy anything despite the exhilarating atmosphere, you can catch up on that later. Tailored products can also be delivered all over the world after a consultation and head measurement.

Homewood Suites
If you want to stay at the pulsating heart of Chicago there are many glossy luxury hotels. However, you can also go with a more comfortable option. The Homewood Suites are particularly suitable for families who want more space than a common hotel room provides. The prices for these casual and spacious apartments with two rooms are affordable. If you want to cater for yourself - no problem: there is a fully-equipped kitchen and the fridge is filled on your arrival. What distinguishes the hotel from the masses are extras and service. The grocery shopping is done for you and free of charge and a warm breakfast buffet and dinner with several small dishes from Monday to Thursday (even a glass of beer or wine) are included. You don`t even pay for fitness and workout. The plus for kids: dabbling in the pool, and each apartment is equipped with a video game console.
