Chicago has The Bears, The Cubs and The White Sox. Don't forget The Bulls and The Black Hawks. Does Los Angeles even have a football team? Spend the first part of Sunday at Soldier Field and watch The Chicago Bears take down The Packers. Down multiple beers and eat 10 hot dogs and know what it feels like to be a real bear.
Mellow Out with Some Music
Jazz is arguably the best music in the world. It's definitely an American-born style that many assume is best listened to in New York or the Deep South. Chicago is the true jazz town. When half the clubs went dark in New York, more sprang up in Chicago. Check out Andy's any Sunday afternoon, just two blocks from Michigan Avenue. The club is famous for its Jazz at Noon, which became so popular it now has Jazz at 5 and 9.
Slab of Heaven
After a Sunday yelling your lungs out at Soldier Field and dancing to bebop at Andy's, you'll need a hardy meal. Forget the deep-dish pizza and head to one of five locations of Leon's Famous Ribs. Any place that marinates its ribs for two days is a place that respects meat.
