1. Deep-dish pizza sounds amazing but it’s a no-go since you’re gluten free and all.
2. Cycling around the city? You prefer driving as it involves way less effort.

4. You’ll get addicted to taking photos with the bean.

8. Paddleboarding sounds fun, but what if you fall in?
9. It’s always cold. Every single day.

12. Outdoor concerts in Millennium Park? You’re too much of a philistine to enjoy them, even if they are free.
13. There’s people exercising everywhere…how annoying!
14. No other music festival will compare after you go to Lollapalooza.
15. There’s just too much to fit into your trip, like beer tasting at Lagunitas Brewing Company. Why even bother?
