Live in McHenry, IL, about 70 miles NW of Chicago, but spend quite of bit of time in the city (mostly weekends). The 2 hr round trip commute can be painful, especially if visiting on consecutive days. I enjoy the shopping and dining experiences, but mostly come to Chicago for the music scene. I'm pretty quiet and can keep to myself pretty well. So really am looking for a rest my weary head before and/or after shows.
