While Chicago will forever be a Cubs and Bears town, it's more enjoyable to consider this a hockey city. After all, the Blackhawks are the good team, the one that wins championships. Weird to think that a decade ago, the NHL squad was not on television and tickets for its games at the United Center cost less than a craft cocktail. Today, the 'Hawks pack the arena on Madison Street, just west of one of the best restaurant hubs in America. It's not even that far from downtown and Grant Park, which makes those victory parades a breeze. No pressure, fellas, but we'd like one of those every year.
