    Get something from the Frontera in the airport for breakfast at the very least.

    Frontera?

    Rick Bayless has a restaurant in O'Hare called Tortas Frontera. It's pretty great for airport food.

    anyways if you were wanting to make fun of a chicago baseball team in 2016, the white sox have provided the best material, anyways

    before the season, a player quit the team because the team didn't want his twelve year-old home schooled kid in the locker room at every single game, which caused a bunch of players to revolt for...some reason. one of them even put up a shrine in the locker room for this kid, who, I should emphasize, is not dead.

    and then a pitcher didn't want to wear a specific uniform so he threw a fit and cut up all the uniforms

    Tortas Frontera. Airport food done by Chicago's Mexican food master Rick Bayless. The only airport food i've ever truly enjoyed. Genuinely good tortas. The agua frescas are good too. Stop by in the morning, very worth it.

    They have one in Terminal 1 and Terminal 3, and possibly Terminal 5 now as well.

    That's a great find, thank you! It turns out Shoeless Joe's is an hour away so I figure I'm just going to stay here.

    If you've got money to burn, I'd just ask a Lyft driver to drive you around. Chicago's skyline and cityscape are absolutely gorgeous at night.

    I feel like it may not be clear that I was joking when I suggested The Hangge-Uppe but I was joking (although it can be fun).

    I am kinda jealous though. I haven't been back home to Chi in years unless you count my forced layover when the snowstorm blew in last fall and I was in town 24 hours and jetlagged to hell. I was going to visit my grandmother before I moved here, but... that didn't happen.

    Don't be jealous. I'm here at precisely the time when I can't even have a fucking McDonalds. I have enough of a layover that it's a boring pain in the arse and not enough that I can do anything. It's a real shit show.

    Sit on one of those toilets and slightly move your ass and you will curse the day they invited the automatic toilet cover.

    The only time I've encountered them has been in American airports.

    Generally going to the loo is a bleak and confusing time in the US

    I am pretty sure they are in the Atlanta airport to some degree, because that's the one I spend the most time in. It probably saves a decent amount of change in cleaning fees too.

    They have VERY clean bathrooms in the Charlotte airport, but they also have bathroom staff with a tip jar and I'm like I DON'T CARRY CASH IN THE UNITED STATES

    The anxiety is such that I just don't pee there.

    Our illustrious leader should make a video where he makes strangers in the airport say the word "yo" to him and then upload it to the internet in a way that is easy to access.

    It'll be a new viral sensation.

    We could call it yo-tube.

    Yeah, I hate this! My best friend lives in Charlotte, and every time I fly through there I have a dude offering me a mint whenever I pee.
