Offbeat pop culture magazine Nylon takes “the pulse of the most exciting cities in the nation” in its November issue. Of course Chicago is included. Not just Chicago, but “the real Chicago:”
…like Logan Square, where artists shop for breakfast radishes at the weekend farmers market and knock back a couple of Van Winkle whiskeys at the gastropub on the corner after work.
The Chicago feature includes about 14 elements of note, and there are 6 (six!) mentions of Logan Square or neighboring Avondale attractions:
- The Logan Square Farmers Market mentioned above;
- Esther Garcia of the new Butterfat Tattoo;
- Longman & Eagle (even beyond the whiskey reference above for those who picked up on it);
- Sparrow salon;
- Hot Doug’s; and
- Kuma’s Corner.
It’s official: we’re pop-ular.
Holiday diversions in Logan Square
CTA Holiday Train: Santa rolls through Logan Square Thursday, December 2 at 4:30 p.m. and 6:10 p.m.; Santa returns Friday and Saturday, December 3-4; check the CTA’s website for precise times.
I’m glad I moved to the reaallll Chicago.
