Occupation: Xerox - Marketing Business Partner
Fondest FSU memory: Beyond my favorite restaurants, El Tap on Monroe Street and Monks on Tharpe Street, win or lose, game day celebrations at the strip on Tennessee Street - Kens, Inn Between, and Bulls - are my most cherished memory with great friends. I know the "fun" has relocated to Gaines Street now (lame), but prior to Gaines St., which used to be nothing but abandoned warehouses and a random Halloween scare house, the fun was at the Strip and game days only exacerbated the excitement. Chicago is an amazing and vibrant city but Tallahassee and Ken's dollar beers will forever hold a special place in my heart!
Favorite Chicago bar/restaurant: Chicago is home to so many special cuisines, even one world renowned 3 star-Michelin restaurant, Alinea. That being said, it's hard to have a favorite. If you're visiting, there is nothing more enhancing than some awesome laid back, but upscale food on river at River Roast - the steak and arugula salad is amazing! But if you want a taste of southern BBQ with a Chicago twist, Green Street Smoked Meats BBQ is by far the best place to capture a little piece of the south.
