#AvaOnTheGo: I Made It to The #Chi: @BPigCafe #LincolnPark Edition

So I finally made it to Chicago! I decided to try something that is really popular in these parts for students and travelers to area conventions and even when folks are catching concerts. The thing to do is to opt for a hostel instead of a hotel. There is a really great one (I was absolutely amazed at the look, the atmosphere, and the cuteness of the Chicago Geteaway Hostel. For an uber frugal individual, this place has all the amenities you need. Everything from resident socials to pub crawls, to get this, a FREE breakfast! You can also opt to prepare your own meal in their state of the art kitchen/cafeteria. It was clean, they have a pool table, and yoga. This will probably be my new duck-off in the #Chi :)

Check out the lobby! This place is super Euro! I love the design and accessibility; yes there is wi-fi and a computer lab and laptop/tablet stations right across from here.

This is just outside of the Chicago Getaway in Lincoln Park. The area has some amazing spaces and sights to see! This is probably the cutest little neighborhood I've visited in Chicago. There are local eateries, DePaul University, tea emporiums, coffee shops, a CVS, and finally, a FedEx Kinkos right in the neighborhood.

So let me elaborate on the goodness of this here brownie... I went lookin for Melanie, my Ma. I swore she was back in the kitchen - the same cocoa chocolate used in the brownie is used in the Mocha aaaaaaaand it was AMAZING! I think I will have another before I depart.

I'll check back in later today,
