Chi Town, Chi City, The Windy City whatever you call it Chicago is synomous with Michael Jordan (Whos orig really from Brooklyn), Oprah, Gangs, Jays Potato Chips, Garretts Popcorn, Good Times, Deep Dish Pizza, DA Bears, and brothas who call everybody “Joe.” I hit the Chi for the DUB car show at McCormick Place, The Taste of Chicago and to see who has the best deep dish pizza. My first mission though was to shop for kicks, I hit Phli, Saint Alfred, and Leaders. Didnt really find what I was looking for, but I did Run into Lupe Fiasco at St. Alfred keep doing ya thing brotha www.myspace.com/lupefiasco.As soon I stepped out of the airport I had to put on a jacket, they dont call it the Windy City for nothing, even in July the weather was Chilly!
That night we had dinner at Lou Malnatis (Deep Dish Pizza). So far I’ve had Giordanos, Ginos East, Pizzaria Uno, and Baccions! Hmm.. I think Baccions might be the best so far, but I still have to have Home Run Inn and Pequads.
I hit the southside to catch up the homie Mike Jones (No not the rapper) whos running things for DTLR up there now, check the pic. Shout out to Seandell, and other Other light skin brothas I met! LIGHT SKIN BROTHAS IS BACK LIKE WE LEFT SOMETHING!!!! LOL.
I’ve always admired the Lake front skyline of Chicago, I think they may have the best skyline in the country, not to mention the tallest building in the U.S.- The Sears Tower! I took these pics from the Southside, doesnt really do it justice, but you get the point.
Lucky for me I just so happened to be around during the “Taste of Chicago.” – Imagine a really Big Block party with Food that happens every year around the 4th of July. All the food is bought with tickets which you purchase on your way in. Also got a glimpe up close and personal of the new Scion 2008 XB! The design is fresh and the inside is Clean!!!
Shout out to my Chicago fam, Wil Wes, Sang, and Pugzlee (Thanks for looking out and holding it down)! Doc West, Dj Rude One, Shareef and CL (who I missed on this trip)!
