Best of Chicago

| | Comments (3) | TrackBacks (0)

The Chicago Reader came out with its "Best of Chicago" issue. It follows the generally north-side centric bent of its audience (especially for the reader-voted categories). Hyde Park/mid-South Side connected items:

  • Hallowed Grounds - in the Reynolds Club walks away with "Best University Coffeehouse".
  • UofC is well-represented in politics: alumni and/or former faculty Ameya Pawar, Toni Preckwinkle, and the Obamas are mentioned in various categories
  • Nearby notables that get a nod include: Jackson Park Golf Course, Lakeside Lawn Bowling (in Jackson Park), watching cricket in Washington Park, and Daley's Restaurant on 63rd Street.
Any bests you think they missed?
