Overview

Alternative Chicago will take you to all these places and more. It is a neighborhood-by-neighborhood guidebook for the young-at-heart, adventurous, or slightly offbeat Chicago visitor. If you want to see more of the city than the homogenous Michigan Avenue shopping district, this is the book for you. If you're interested in enjoying a restaurant that you can't find in every other city in the United States, pick up this book. If you want to drink beer with some real Chicagoans, not just tourists, you'll find some great suggestions here. But Alternative Chicago isn't just for visitors and tourists. Chicagoans will find it a helpful guide to unfamliar neighborhoods, and far-flung suburbanites will clutch it as they venture onto the "L" and head for the city. Here you will find places to eat and drink and buy books and vintage clothes without having to go up to your eyeballs in debt or sell off your car. It's a different way to experience the city in a genuine "sweet home Chicago" way.

This book will give you many cool addresses and 'Alternative' ideas BUT...where are the web-site addresses? Where are the great 'Alternative' spaces to stay while visiting? The author refers to the 'L' but where are the helpful hints to Chicago mass transit? What really irked me was the author doesn't seem to have a address or a web-site for comment. His book could be enriched with the free submissions of others who love Chicago and all the great things it has to offer at any budget.
