Coffee shops, specifically coffee shops in the neighborhood where your “type of guy” goes, are not to be overlooked. For example, hipsters and the like should head straight to the Wormhole Coffee Shop, do not pass go, do not collect $200. Everyone else, think of what tickles your fancy — finance type guys in suits? Head to a Starbucks in the Loop. Argo’s are a great middle ground between corporate lovin’ Starbucks and the artsy crowd at independent shops. Because so many jobs today allow the flexibility to work from home (or from wherever you’d like), don’t assume that just because he’s at Starbucks at 1 p.m. that he’s broke or unemployed.

The New Hotspot In Town
There’s something to be said about guys who like to stay on top of the latest trendy place around town. That’s an activity in it of itself, and a commendable one in a city like Chicago where it seems there’s always something opening or closing down. But, being a “drinkie” and a “foodie” are interests you can share with a man, so if this is your scene, check out 25 Degrees, the new “bordello meets burger bar” in River North. It doesn’t hurt that I live 2 blocks away so I’ve seen it on its busy days, (Wed-Sat) and wow, lots of cute guys! Grab your girls, or hell, come solo, order an adult milkshake and be prepared to get your flirt on. And if you see me there, say hi.
