  1. When traveling in Chicago, carry a gun, keep your doors locked, and hit the gas if anyone wearing saggy pants approaches your vehicle.

    1. Uh, Schaumburg (Itasca, actually) is merely part of metropolitan Chicago, not Chicago itself. Your main concern will be the road construction surrounding the hotel. Try to avoid arriving Friday afternoon and early evening, as rush hour around here snarls fiercely at that time.

  2. If you don’t travel west and farther south than Chinatown, and if you look disheveled and poor, you should be safe in Chicago.
