It’s Friday, so you know what that means–here’s your link to Chicago Picks! For those of you who don’t know Chicago Picks is an e-mail newsletter that I also write for. We keep people in the Chicago area abreast of new boutiques, hip happenings, & where to get the best food & drinks in town. Today we bring you our special holiday edition & it’s all about our favorite places from 2008. You can learn more about us here & if you’re lucky enough to live in Chicago, subscribe & be in the know!
