At a time of day when most Chicagoans are preparing for their morning commutes, Andy Burmesch is crawling headfirst into a hole. It’s the size of a coffin and stinks like rotten meat, but Burmesch is undeterred. The field technician wriggles into the ground until only his boots are visible, and emerges triumphantly moments later. In a gloved hand he holds a coyote pup—every bit as cute as its domestic K9 cousins—by the scruff of its neck.

Chicago often ranks among the most haunted cities in the United States, but not everyone is a fan of ghost stories. When I asked Northwestern University professor and historian Bill Savage to weigh in, he said, “Chicago is haunted not by ghosts, but by the city’s neglect of the working class.” Whether you believe in the supernatural or not (I’m with Bill), most of Chicago’s enduring ghost stories contain at least a kernel of historical truth. With that in mind, here are the ten “most haunted” sites in the city. Read the Full Story here: http://www.chicagomag.com/city-life/October-2017/A-Guide-to-Chicagos-Most-Haunted-Places

But no one in Chicago is making pommes frites quite like Friistyle, an unassuming, fast-casual joint that opened in Bronzeville just over a month ago.
