Welcome to Chicago, Nery

A Chicago Guide

With Nery Castillo being a new transplant to the Windy City, we thought it important to ask for your input on the top spots around town for the Fire’s newest player to visit… Some were consensus choices and others came with well-made arguments, but all are good spots for Nery and his family to gain great experiences while here in Chicago…
