Meet 10 Of Chicago's Coolest Dads

UPDATE: Father's Day is long past, but the cool factor on these studly dads has only gone up, up, up. Check out their stories for a little Sunday pick-me-up. This story was originally published on June 14.
With Father's Day hot on the horizon, we wanted to take a minute and show a little love to a few rad dads around Chicago. The holiday isn't just about letting Pop sleep in or hunting down a cute tie he doesn't already own: We want to celebrate the hard work and joy that comes with being a parent. So, we asked 10 of Chicago's coolest dudes why they love their #1 job (Daddy), and, while we were at it, we made sure to get their advice for dads-to-be, too. Click through and check out some of Chicago's most adorable family photos, then call up your dad and tell him why you think he's tops.
