Jacky's City Guides

 

Jacky Runice, Chicago Local Expert

About Jacky

Jacky Runice

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?" 

 

Special Interests

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."
