Overview

Chicago's best-selling almanac is back - newly updated for the new millennium!

More good numbers. More great stories. And completely updated for 2003,with brand-new material on Michael Jordan's retirement from the Bulls, new Chicago buildings and parks, updated information from the 2000 census, and much more.

The Metro Chicago Almanac is fun. And factual. And indispensable to anyone looking for the lowdown on the City of Big Shoulders, and the entire Chicago area. It's a one-stop shopping trip for all those essential facts and quirky pieces of lore, large and small, that make up the essence of this town.

Maybe you'd like to know who are the biggest "stars" of the Brookfield Zoo and the Lincoln Park Zoo. It's in the Almanac.

Or maybe you'd like to know what's been invented in Chicago besides roller skates, the zipper, and the Twinkie. It's in the Almanac.

Or maybe you'd like to learn about the highest Cubs batting average in history, the lowest White Sox ERA, the longest-ruling suburban mayor, and who is buried beneath the tallest monument on the largest lot in historic Rosehill Cemetery.

It's all in the Almanac.

Among the standard categories in the Metro Chicago Almanac are "Lists of Terns" (such as the ten tallest buildings in Chicago), Chicago "Firsts" (such as the first Weber grill, appropriately invented in the suburbs), "Extremes" (such as the hottest, coldest, windiest, and snowiest days), "Famous Chicagoans," and "Classic Quotes."

Author Biography: Don Hayner is the Metro editor for the Chicago Sun-Times, and Tom McNamee is the paper's Sunday editor. both have also been City desk reporters for the paper, and co-hosted a Saturday morning program on WLS radio.
