I recently sat down with returning guest and awesome guy, Scott Frankcombe for an informal interview. Scott’s hometown is Sydney, Australia, but while in Chicago he plays with the DePaul Blue Demon Marching Band. As you may see, Scott is extremely photogenic. He has grown quite fond of Chicago entertainment, and has shared his recommendations with us….
Q: What is one of your favorite restaurants in Chicago?
A: Pequod’s Pizza. They have excellent deep dish pizza and offer a real fun atmosphere. Plus, they are within walking distance from the hostel.
Q: How about a great cheap place to eat close to the hostel?
A: Allende! Delicious and very cheap Mexican food. Great after a night of drinking, and a short walk from the hostel.
Q: Awesome. How about a cool place to visit while in Chicago?
A: The Art Institute of Chicago. Oh and definitely check it out on Thursday evenings cause it’s free from 5:00pm-8:00pm.
Q: How about also recommending us a nice place for nightly entertainment?
A: The Jazz Showcase in the Downtown area. Its located in the historic Dearborn Station, and features great acoustic jazz in a wonderful setting. This place was a real treat.
