Take along Chicago’s annual list—this year, 91 of the very best people, places, and things Chicago has to offer right now—and hit the town. Find out about the funniest comedy nights, the shops that deserve a stop, the local rapper to know about, the Instagrammers to follow, the top new restaurants and bars in the hottest neighborhoods, and much, much more.
