Everything you ever wanted to know about Chicago, but were afraid to ask

The authors of the very very awesome Encyclopedia of Chicago will be at Borders on Michigan tonight at 7pm. Clocking in at 1104 pages (and hardcover) you can make yourself appear smart as well as muscular.

Let New York and Los Angeles cat fight all they want…we’ll just be snickering in the corner with the quiet pride of the living in the greatest city. This brick paperweight bible of Chicago is a testament to that.

Review here, here, Mr. Chicago Triviamaster here.
