ماذا ستفعل

Our tour will involve visiting a variety of hidden gems around Chicago’s daytime scene. These are places you will not find on any list online-- they are hand-curated by me and they're best suited for those that are curious adventurers looking to really dive deep into the neighborhoods that brought about the creation of these places. My tour isn’t the usual touristy tours provided here— I won’t take you to the bean or the art institute. Instead, my tour involves some incredibly unconventional, yet charming spots that bring incredible value to their neighborhood. You will be a local for the time. We will look into what makes each place unique, how much value it brings to that community, and I will share bits and pieces of some of the most interesting Chicago history I know. My goal on this tour is that you fall in love with the Chicago I fell in love with-- the city behind the hype, TV shows, and media coverage.

We will begin by meeting in Wicker Park to visit a local used book store carrying over 80,000 books. From there, we will head south to a diverse, yet underappreciated, neighborhood known as Bridgeport. We will visit a tucked-away coffee shop known for its eccentric retro decor and colorful walls. Later, we will then finish with the most beautiful, waterfront view of the Chicago skyline you'll ever see.

I am a freelance writer and have been a Chicago resident for almost a decade now. In that decade, I have dedicated so much of my own time trying to locate places around this city that are unique, quaint or downright unconventional. As a writer needing to find inspiration, I looked for places around the city that brought me peace and comfort. As I explored neighborhoods up and down, I began to realize that while some places are visited, other places are experienced. Those were the places I familiarized myself with. I didn't do great writing in bars-- rather, I found I was at my best writing in old bookstores, oddity shops, and coffee shops tucked away in forgotten corners of this marvelous city.
I am a curious explorer, a welcoming guide, and your local friend.

أين ستكون

The bookstore we'll visit first has been around for almost three decades and stands at about three stories. The coffee shop we'll visit after is quaint and unique. It is truly tucked away in a mostly residential area and is easily missed if you don't know where to look! Lastly, our skyline view is crisp and close. It is perfect for us to spend some time taking photos! If photos aren't your thing, you can spend time soaking it all in or reading.
