Going to Chicago!!!
« on: September 21, 2012, 03:34:04 PM »

do you have any tipps where to find a cheap place to stay, what parts of town definetly to stay out of and parks/ spots?

you can check out the chicago thread on here, it's got alot of good stuff on there relating to spots and such.  the only shop you need to know is Uprise, off of Western and Miluakee.  Wilson skatepark, off of Wilson in Lakeshore Drive is the only legimitate skatepark in the city.  As far as bad neighborhoods, it's more complicated then just avoiding certain neighborhoods.  If you're trying to skate, I'd suggest spending most of your time downtown, it'd eliminate your problem of venturing off accidentally into a bad neighborhood, and that's where you'd have the highest concentration of spots.  But as far as sketchy neighborhoods go, you should be fine if you're not acting like an idiot or hanging around at night.  good luck, PM me if you have any questions.

everything gnarwhal said is right on. especially uprise. youre pretty much gonna be safe anywhere downtown but its always good to watch your back. wilson is your best option for a park. for some great chicago food hit up lou malnatis for deep dish and portillos for hotdogs. i know its cliche but theyre both amazing

LOU'S GOT THAT DEEP DISH. Malnati Chicago Classic. You'll thank me later.

Skate downtown. That's where the most spots/least sketch is. It's great, because if you get kicked out, you cross a couple of streets and are at another super great spot.

Shops: Uprise and Citizen. Citizen is right by Wilson, and has coffee. Luh dat coffee.
