Keeping with the work-trip tradition of posting while traveling from city to city, I thought I'd kick this one off by proclaiming Chicago the raddest town in America.
I know, I know, youre thinking - "why Ryan, what an unsubstantiated claim you make regarding the overall likability of one city over another"
Well here's why Chicago rules: within 3 hours of getting off my plane I devoured one of the best slabs of ribs I've ever had in my life at The Weber Grill Restaurant and was solicited for sex outside my hotel by what I have to assume was a homeless crackhead(woman).
Heres how the convo went...
Homeless Crackhead: Can you help me out with some change?
Ryan: Sorry, I don't have anything on me (pulls out pockets Uncle Pennybags style)
HC: Are you here alone?
HC: Can I stay with you?
HC: (pauses) What do you think I mean?
HC: Can I go upstairs with you?
Ryan: OHH no no no, Im ok, thank you
...HC scurries along nervously
You rule Chicago.
