Hack­ers and Smack­ers

Exclaim! - - MY CITY -

(921 ELMHURST RD.)

I en­joy golf. I know, it’s weird. I get all of the ar­gu­ments against it, but I can’t help my­self. Some­times I like to drive to the south­west cor­ner of the city and hit balls for an hour. Hack­ers and Smack­ers is a fam­ily-run driv­ing range where id­iots like me can swing a metal stick at a lit­tle ball and watch it fly this way and that.

GOOD WILL SO­CIAL CLUB (625 PORTAGE AVE.)

Our stu­dio has been at 625 Portage for 12 years. Good Will moved into the space a few years ago and I’ve prob­a­bly spent $5,000 on cof­fees, beers and tacos since. Get a cof­fee, work, come down for lunch, work some more, drink a beer on the pa­tio, more work, then back down to watch a show.

CLEMENTINE (123 PRINCESS ST.)

I could eat break­fast for ev­ery meal. I also hap­pen to live in the same block as the best break­fast/ brunch spot on Earth. I guess life ain’t so bad. When­ever I travel and go out for break­fast, I’m usu­ally just dis­ap­pointed that I’m not at Clementine.
