The Run Down

For this week’s guide we’re headed to the Elston Industrial Corridor, a small stretch of blocks that separate Bucktown and Lincoln Park. It’s mostly old warehouses and factories, but its prime location in Chicago has been attracting an interesting mix of new businesses and developers over the past few years. We’ll be visiting a butcher shop and local food grocer for lunch, and afterwards, we’re going to an old loft warehouse to do some bouldering. Here are the details.
