Going the last weekend in April, coming from a shit town for game shopping. Are there any good places for mvs(will anyone give up their honey hole)? Can't think of anything else I'd be looking for, maybe a super CD-rom 2.

Any other stuff I should go see also? I will have two kids with me, 7 and 2, so looking for family type stuff. Can anyone suggest a taxi company that you would trust with your kids? I'm not sending them around alone, I'll be with them the whole time. Work trip for my wife.

Already planned the aquarium, museums, and a cubs game(i wanted to go to the Sox).

If you guys wanna fuck around with me in this thread, so be it, but don't send me somewhere that will put my kids in danger. The last place I wanna be is the south side of town, staring down bad bad Leroy Brown, with a two year old girl in my arms.

Thanks.

you dont know shit about this town if you are writing off half the city.

most of the shit is confined to specific neighborhoods (and there are several on the north side too).

Then dont fucking go to Chicago

I had that reaction at first, but it can't be all bad. At least it's not Detroit or New Orleans.

Let me say this. I really don't believe anyone would send me somewhere that I would get stabbed when I stepped out of the cab(i really, really hope this is true). And if it was just me, I'm cool with scary but harmless pranks. But you know what I'm getting at, I would prefer to stay in the more touristy places with the kids.

I was paraphrasing Jim Croche man. We are all old enough to know who he is right?

Definitely pizza, not much of a dog eater, unless I'm at the stadium.excellent suggestion, any specific places?

I would have recommended the best pizza place in chicago, but it is on the south side in a very safe neighborhood.. :keke:

There's no game shops worth visiting in this town that isn't going to rape you.

Plenty to see and do and eat.

There was an exact thread on this a few months ago. Where are you staying?

Cmon, there are plenty of great pizza places close to where I assume he's staying. Nobody with a wife and 2 kids is going to take an Uber to get pizza at a place 15 miles away.

oh i'm aware, but discounting half the city + the recent thread on this was a perfect time for that sort of response.

edit: for the record, i would take an uber 15 miles out of my way for the right pie.

double edit: wrigley field is one of the most dangerous places in the city for a tourist as their fans are real shitbags in general. just sayin'.

Detroit ain't that bad, pussy. It actually had less homicides than Chicago in the past 2 or 3 years.
