Chicago Like a Local Blog

Unique perspectives on the city from the people who live here.

Author: Emmy Carragher

Emmy is a former staff member at Choose Chicago, and is ever on the hunt for the perfect cup of coffee. Originally from outside Boston, Emmy's love for Chicago began when she moved here five years ago. A graduate of Loyola University Chicago, Emmy is embracing the local dining scene, nightlife, culture and lifestyle with a friendly Midwest demeanor, but always with an East Coast edge (she can't help it).
