Jacky's City Guides
Jacky Runice, Chicago Local Expert
Born in Bucktown when bulletproof was a home safety choice and not a coffee order, Jacky Runice has been knocking around Chicago as a professional print, online and broadcast journalist and editor specializing in separating the riff from the raff in politics, culture, entertainment, food and pure unadulterated fun.
In her best Chicagoese, Jacky asks, "Who has the time or money to blow on hotels, attractions, restaurants, exhibits, concerts and activities that blow?"
Jacky knows a lot about:
- Pizza, panuchos and pierogi
- Exceptional accomodations
- Dodging the banal
Jacky's Special Recommendations for Chicago
"Visit a 'real' neighborhood before it gets the gentrification overhaul of tidy uniformity. Try Bridgeport for old world bakery or Uptown for banh mi."
