Places to go that you want to give away your money.
Great local hardware store that is way more helpful and often cheaper than the big chains. Got a glass replacement for one of my picture frames for less than $5.
The best neighborhood grocery stores in Rogers Park. Great produce, cheap meat and a very large selection of dry goods.
Really friendly music store. They helped me pick out a tuner for my guitar. They also teach lessons & rent instruments.
The moment you walk into this cozy bookstore, you can smell all the books in there. You'd be surprised what you'll find here. The books are diverse & quite cheap.
An AMAZING wine & beer shop hidden in Rogers Park. Fantastic choices for Italian, French & American wine. The craft brew choices are phenomenal! Also, there are numerous spirits that I never heard of before but very curious to try in the near future.
Cheapest first run theater in Chicago. 4 intimate screens with a stocked bar and popcorn. Popcorn & a movie anyone?
