Legend has it that Chicago is known as the windy city not because of the cold gusts whipping off Lake Michigan in the winter, but because of its tradition of hot air bellowing from its politicians.  This legend fits the city’s lively atmosphere, as it seems there is always something to do here, from its world-class museums to shopping to ubiquitous music and comedy clubs.  The vibe of excitement here was recently pushed up a notch when the Cubs won their first World Series since 1908.
