All of Chicago, straight to your living room
Time In Couchbound No. #03
When this is over...
No matter how much you love Chicago, there are a few things that grind every city-dweller’s gears, like CTA delays, the wait list at Au Cheval and the random assortment of junk your neighbor lines the curb with during dibs season. But after being locked down in our apartments for weeks on end, we’ve all gained some perspective on the things we used to whine about constantly. In fact, there are 16 things we promise to never complain about again (audibly, at the very least) once this is all over.
