Haris Ahmed Looks at Hidden Chicago Gems


Chicago has this year hosted Staffing World 2017. Thousands of people attended the block of Removille and various other parts of the city. And while they were there, they enjoyed everything this great city has to offer. For Haris Ahmed, who is himself of the block, Chicago truly is the place to be. He has created an important piece of information for men and women alike, so that they know exactly where to go in Chicago if they are visiting it.

Haris Ahmed on Where to Eat in Chicago

While most people know Chicago for the Chicago Town Pizza, hot dogs are equally good. If you want to have a truly good hot dog and not get charged too much, then Gene & Jude’s is the place to go. This is one of the most famous hot dog places in town, and almost everybody has paid it a visit at some point or another, men, women, and children alike. Do not, however, ask them to put ketchup on your hot dog. It really isn’t appreciated.

If you’re more into beef, then Al’s Beef is the place to go. This opened in the 1930s and has been going strong ever since. It is also very conveniently located so you won’t feel like you have to go out of your way to get there.

Of course, Chicago is also home to the pizza. Lou Malnati’s is the best place to go for a deep dish that is loaded with cheese. But with Chicago being Chicago, the perfect pizza is never far.

Haris Ahmed on Where to Drink in Chicago

If you’re not in Chicago for the food, then perhaps you would like to have some drinks instead. Or you can do both! SafeHouse, for instance, offers both food and drinks. It is a secretive bar, however, so good luck getting in! You can also try the Headquarters Beercade and the Coco Club, or the Green Mill Cocktail Lounge, which was Al Capone’s favorite haunt.

Haris Ahmed on What to Do

In between all that eating and drinking, you may also want to have a couple of things to do. Make sure you don’t miss Oz Park, where you can be among the characters from the Wizard of Oz. The Chicago Film Tour and the Chicago Pizza Tour are also not to be missed. If you don’t fancy going on a tour, then consider the Driehouse Museum or the Chicago History Museum instead.

A couple of other good places to go include Lincoln Square, Wicker Park, Andersonville, and Evanston.

As you can see, Chicago is a city that truly has it all. If you want to stuff your face and drink too much alcohol, the city will accommodate. If, however, you want to be cultured and sophisticated, there are equally great places to go. Whatever your personal preferences are, you are guaranteed to have an amazing time in Chicago and truly fall in love with the place.
