its great - just be very very careful about crime. as long as you are careful, you'll have a blast. food is really good, beaches are great
dinner last night at the girl and the goat. one of the best meals I've ever had. here's the thing - I really prefer sharing small plates to a steak, and I really like braised and stewed meats to rarer meats. so the menu is all small plates made for sharing, and the meat and veg sections (we honestly didn't have any fish, aside from a shrimp dish that I didn't eat) are heavy on braised and stewed meats. we had great beef short ribs, a pork shank, lamb ribs, goat empanada...
I think walters death scene was very important to him - no matter what his son thinks of him, he blew away a room full of Nazis. snorting a little meth at that point would just mess up the scene.

I like the L, but I don't depend on it, I ride it once or twice a month. the beaches are fantastic in Chicago, I would try to live as within walking distance of a beach. if I could chose a place in the city, I'd be aiming for clark street more or less around Lincoln park - walk to the beach, walk downtown,...
