The winner of our Favorite City Contest was the lovely Alex.
Though she no longer calls Chicago home, the town is still one of her favorite locales. A few things on her don't miss list are Bloody Marys at Silver Cloud, a trip to Myopic Books, the Ukranian Village, and concerts at Double Door.
She even told us that Chicago's called the Windy City not for it's frigid gusts, but because of a politician known for his lengthy pontifications.
Even cooler? Alex is a fellow jewelry designer. Check out her work here.
