Ashley! Love this blog on Chi-town. Last year, around this same time, I fought the bitter cold weather of Chicago and I can definitely understand your want (or even need) to hibernate. But it'll be all worth it when July comes around and you are sitting pretty in 70 degree weather while the rest of us here in the dirty south are sweating like burly men in 100 degrees!
Also, I had the wonderful opportunity to visit that SEC sports bar you spoke of, actually the day that Kentucky beat LSU a couple of seasons back, and it was great! There is a wonderful southern camaraderie that is present and it really will take you home for at least a couple of hours on a Saturday afternoon. It'll be a fun place to visit come September during football season. I promise!
Good luck in Chicago...I know you'll do great things in Southwest Marketing there!
