One of the Chicago neighborhoods I enjoy visiting is Wicker Park. There are a few shops there that I love dearly. At the moment my favorite is probably iCream, the create-your-own ice cream shop, but more on that another day. (If I wait to blog about it, then I have an excuse to go back--to take pictures, of course, not just 'cause I'm drooling as I type this...) Wicker Park also has tens of little shoe shops I won't let myself enter but melt a little every time I walk past. And then there's Myopic, among the cheapest and best-stocked used bookstores I know of.
