For anyone coming to to visit your Sailor in Great Lakes, one of the biggest questions everyone has is: Where do you recommend we go for (fill in the blank)?
I was born in raised in Chicago and the suburbs and for those of you who don't know, I work at the base (10 years as of May) but please know I am not here in a professional work capacity, I am here as a volunteer helping to make sure everyone has the correct information. I have been on this site under various names for 10 years since May 2008. (Various names because a few times someone has ticked me off on here and said, "Screw this site! Only to return a few days later. Oh, hush. I haven't quit in quite a few years now.)
Thus, I have a lot of knowledge of Chicagoland (which describes Chicago and all its suburbs) as do other fine ladies on this site who also live in the area.
Some ladies might live in the suburbs and frequent the city more than I do, even though I actually live in the city, and can offer suggestions that I'm not even aware of. Some may have vast knowledge of the communities surround the base; I have some but this idea here is to have a spot where locals can contribute.
I wish for this to be a group where you can come to get suggestions from locals on restaurants, events, commuting tips, shopping, and especially all ethnicity offerings for area restaurants.
This is a work in progress and I will continue building on it every day and welcome all to contribute if they also have been here and recommend something in a particular category.
