Born and raised in Chicago, but love to get out of the city and see new places (especially in the winter). Love to explore a new city and get away from the tourist traps. See the sights and neighborhoods where the locals go, and get a sense of what the town and people are really about. Prefer the eclectic and random when I travel. I'm a recording engineer, so love music and always try to find a nice local music dive with a decent beer selection to check out.
