3 Things We Love About ... Wicker Park

| No Comments

1. Knowing which of the three La Pasadita locations on Ashland to go to for which food — and knowing when to skip all of them for some tacos al pastor at Carniceria Leon a few blocks north.

2. The top-notch indie movie selection at Brainstorm — and the nerdy-but-cool membership cards they hand out there.

3. The cross-section of cultures that congregates on summer weekends in the actual park. Nelson Algren — whose former home sits just a block away — still would find plenty to document here.

What are your favorite three things about Wicker Park?
