It seems that sometimes the things you should see most are most easy to miss, at least according to Amy Bizzarri who just published her book 111 Places in Chicago That You Must Not Miss. While going through treatment for breast cancer, she found many places – 111 to be exact – that are “must-sees” in Chicago.
Many of these places are very “easy to miss,” like Hero Coffee Bar, located at 22 E. Jackson Boulevard. Bizzarri says she just loves watching people “come across it for the first time.”
Bizzarri did her research together with Photographer Susie Inverso and the two of them found a whole slew of “beautiful, funky, delicious, unusual, off-kilter, unique, and truly wonderful places for this new guidebook.”
