Chicago Hot Spots

  |   By Stephanie Gray

Chicago Hot Spots

It'll be my first trip there and so far I've only heard really positive talk about this bustling metropolis. Tons of celebrities, and most notably America's newest President (Go Obama!), have called this city their home or simply just love visiting. Remember when Jennifer Aniston and Vince Vaughn were an item? They were seen canoodling at the posh Victor Hotel (, while Brad and Angie indulged in sushi at Japonais ( While I won't be following the exact footsteps of these A-listers, I will be Zen-ing out in style at the new Dana Hotel and Spa (, conveniently located near boutiques galore. I've also planned to indulge at ajasteak (pictured), the hotel's Asian-inspired restaurant. For those of you who love Manhattan but are looking for a change, I think you'll enjoy it here (I'll be sure to report back). Now here's hoping for a celebrity sighting!
