Re: Holiday thread

Krakow IST rad!!

Auschwitz visit was heavy but interesting (for lack of a better word) and the old jewish quarters (Kazmierz and Podgórze) are really cool. Schindlers factory (museum) also heavy and interesting and the overall vibe of the city is kinda cool. Lots of vegan/vegetarian yummy food, cool old part of town which is beautiful and food/taxi etc is really cheap.

Re: Holiday thread

Heading to Chicago in a few weeks to watch my beloved team play at Wrigley Field - bucket list checked. I know some of you are in Chicago, or near Chicago, so tell me, where do I go to try a deep dish pizza for the first time? I've read reviews online for various places, but they are so mixed. I don't want to end up at a tourist trap and wind up being disappointed. Also, what about these Italian beef sandwiches? I want to go where the locals go. I've got baseball, architecture/sight seeing (Frank Lloyd Wright!!), museums and food on the agenda. What else is there that I must experience? Bitchfork music festival is the week I'm there, but the lineup isn't all that interesting.

Re: Holiday thread

That sounds great! One of these years I'm gonna make my way there. Not sure who your team is so I have to ask Cubs vs. ???

Re: Holiday thread

That would be the Rangers. Being an AL team, I don't believe we've ever played Wrigley, so I thought it was a unique opportunity. Unless...World Series preview??

Where's Infinite Jest and Polka when you need 'em?

Re: Holiday thread

Thought it was the Rangers from past posts just wanted to be sure. As a Astros fan I hope it is not a WS preview. If only the 'Stros could win some games against Texas....

Re: Holiday thread

Going to San Francisco in June! Any suggestions apart from the obvious tourist traps would be very much appreciated.

Sorry for the delayed response Swede -

I would suggest City Lights books + also North Beach area and Haight Street --- I actually have no really great suggestions, but thats what I'd do . . .  bar hop in the Mission. I used to like Amnesia, which I think is still around, bloody marys at Zeitgeist -  theres the old skater bar, Kilowatt also -

- IDK theres a lot of good walking, you could walk from Castro to Mission (Delores Park) and then to Financial district downtown, it's a long one but super awesome -

Re: Holiday thread

No worries Seneca! :)

Thanks! We usually do lots of walking wherever we go so that sounds great. City Lights on the agenda (as well as Haight of course)

Any other tips on the west coast? Ist Vegas worth going to (seems so totally surreal and weird it could be good)? Joshua Tree?
Big Sur? San Diego? La la land?
