Hometown: Kenilworth, IL
Occupation: Assistant Director of Soccer Club
What brought you to the event: My girlfriend and I were looking for a fun St Patty's Day event to kickoff the "holiday" weekend, so she recommended the CitySwarm St. Patty's Day Pub Crawl. The event did not disappoint!
Favorite Part of the Event: Listening to the Chicago Pipe Band (while slowly sipping a few Killians). There's nothing like drinking beers to the sound of bagpipes!
Favorite Part of Springtime: The warm(er) weather.
One thing you've always wanted to do in Chicago but haven't: I've never been to a White Sox game. I'm not a Sox fan whatsoever, but I'm still like to check out the Cell for a game.
SPOTTED in Bulls gear!
Spotted underneath snow goggles, helmets, and winter jackets!
Ivan, 29, Currently live in the LP!
What brought you to the event: I love to try new things and I've never been skiing before so when my amazing g/f told me about an all day event through Cityswarm, I was sold. It was a great event for a first - timer like myself.
Favorite part of event: The skiing! Least favorite part...having to get up after falling down 10+ times.
Most looking forward to in spring: Biking and running by the beach.
One thing you've always wanted to do in Chicago but haven't: Rent a boat for the day or jet-ski on the lake!
Erin, 26, North Center
Occupation: full time HR generalist, part time barista
What brought you to the event: i couldn't think of better way to spend my 40 hours a week at a desk than to do it with a sore @$$
Favorite Part of the Event: reminiscing of the college years by playing flippy cup in an adorable local watering hole
Most looking forward to in spring: kayaking in the river, cocktailing on an outdoor patio
One thing you've always wanted to do in Chicago but haven't: always wanted to rent a yacht with the amigos and rage on a 100 degree summer day...ahhh...
Spotted by the fire!
David, 31, West Town
Hometown: South Bend, IN. Avoid it if you can.
What brought you to the event: The Fireside event involved two of my favorite things; watching things on fire and drinking beer while watching things on fire.
Favorite part of event: Fire!
Thoughts on Chicago winter so far: I actually like a good cold snap. Chistkindlemarket would have been a lot better with some heavy snow too. Also, no snowboarding this year. This winter was pretty depressing.
One thing you've always wanted to do in Chicago but haven't: Kayak in the river. I've got an itch to play chicken with a water taxi.

Thoughts on Chicago winter so far: wait it's winter? i hadn't noticed.
One thing you've always wanted to do in Chicago but haven't: A Segway tour, those look fun!
