00:19-00:33 JON: Chicago Illinois, our nation’s 3rd largest city is well known for it’s many sports, it’s fun and enthusiastic locals, great food, a lively blues scene and so much more. but don’t our word for it, we’ll show you on Next Stop Chicago. The fun starts now!
00:34-00:35 Next Stop logo rolls
00:36-00:56 JON; There is no city more passionate about it’s sports than Chicago. You’ve got Da Bears, Da Blackhawks, Da Bulls, Da Cubs, and Da White Sox. Today we’re all about sports, we’re kicking it off here at US Cellular field for a White Sox game, the Twins are in town, then we are gonna head across town and catch the Bulls and the Celtics. Play ball!
01:06-03:15 JON: It’s the White Sox versus the Twins, it is game time. Ximena is going to take us around US Cellular and show us the fan experience. So I see lot’s of different vending options.
XIMENA: We have vegan, vegetarian options, we are trying to go green a little at the park.
JON: And you have pretzels and beer.
XIMENA: We actually have a coupon pretzel that is good for 4 people.
JON: Nice, I like that. So we are high above the field right now. This is pretty cool over here.
XIMENA: It’s our fundamentals track, it’s for children and they teach the kids to pitch, to throw.
JON: Ok, what about the adult who need to learn some fundamentals, what about the adults?
XIMENA: Oh, I don’t know, you might be on your own.
JON: Come on!
XIMENA: You can try it out, maybe they will help you.
JON: I love this, this is a little piece of old Comiskey, he actually stood under that shower on a hot day.
XIMENA: You never know, maybe, it’s possible
JON: It works! Chicago sports are amazing, are you a full Chicago sports fan?
AL: Die hard Sox fan, and I’m here just to have a great time and hope the Sox win all the time.
JON: You know Briana is a big White Sox fan because she organized a group of what, 100 people today?
BRIANA: I do it every year for my boyfriends birthday.
JON: We don’t have Chicago sports, describe to our viewers about Chicago.
BRIANA: It’s like where you are from, it’s who you are, it’s what you represent, it’s the town or the neighborhood you are from. I’m from the south side and definitely you recognize that, you represent, and White Sox is what you are all about.
JON: This is what it’s all about folks, it’s all about families coming to the ball park. Who is your favorite player on the White Sox?
O’BRIEN CHILD: Paul Konerko
JON: Paul Konerko? I like him too.
O’BRIEN DAD: Even from a young age these guys love the Bears, the Hawks, the white Sox, it’s great, it’s a great sports town, it really is.
JON: What a perfect day for baseball, and now we are off the the Bulls game. See all that traffic out here? We didn’t have to sit in that. We’re taking the metro transportation, it is very, very easy here in Chicago, it’s the best way to get around. It stops right outside our hotel, I’m going to make a quick clothes change and then it is go Bulls!
03:21-03:29 JON: Well here we are, it’s the house that Michael built. it’s the United Center, home of the Chicago Blackhawks, who are having an amazing season in hockey and tonight, it’s the Celtics in town taking on the Bulls.
03:42-04:25 JON: Bulls fans are rabid, we’ve got one of them right here, what’s your name buddy?
KEVIN: El Vicaro, they call me the number one and only, representing the matador nation.
JON: Come to almost every game?
KEVIN: Yes sir, I’m known as El Vicaro, the bull cowboy, wrapping you all with the rest of my big boys right here.
JON: You’ve been around since the Jordan days my friend.
HAYWOOD: Yes I have, everybody’s happy, they keep coming back again.
JON: Why are they so passionate about sports here?
HAYWOOD: Michael Jordan is one of who made it famous here, and I see a back up coming up right now with Gary Rowland, like I said shoe shine you have the best guys, the best in the west north south and the east you know and I’m the doctor you know, the master blaster.
04:35-04:54 ALLISON: I am a fan of Captain Heinrick and so we did a poster of Captain Kirk.
JON: In case you get hungry during the game you guys can dig into that. You know what I notice about Chicago? The girls are big big fans, more so than I think in other cities, why do you think that is?
ALLISON: it’s so fun to go to the games, Wrigley Field is beautiful, United Center is awesome, it’s always a good time.
04:59-05:01 Next Stop logo
05:02-05:06 JON: Coming up on Next Stop, the tallest building in the western hemisphere, it will blow your skirt up!
05:07:09 Next Stop logo
05:11-05:28 JON: The Chicago River is the only river on earth that flows backwards. Reversed in 1900 for sanitary purposes, it is considered one of the 20th centuries top engineering marvels. Every year the Saturday before St Patricks day, they dye this river green to celebrate St. Patrick. Sounds like a fun party!
05:33-05:35 next Stop logo
05:40-06:04 JON: Chicago has one of the most impressive skylines of any city in America. Today we are going high above the tallest building in the western hemisphere, Willis Tower, formerly Sears Tower, for a guided tour of the sky deck. There is 2,232 steps from here to the sky deck. Since Mike and I already worked out today, we are sending Josh up the stairs. See you Josh!
06:15-06:27 JON: Here is a fun little Willis Tower fast fact for you…the tower is 262 Michael Jordans tall, and 313 Oprah Winfreys tall, I guess it is about 320 Jon Olsons tall.
06:38-08:33 RANDAL: You are on the 130th floor of the Willis Tower, North America’s highest building, and we are on the sky deck level right now, we have beautiful views today, we into about 3 states that you’ll see, and I would like to point out some of the sights we are going go along the way. Yeah, this is our south shot, we are very proud of this because this is a developing area, it was going to be the site of a lot of the places for the Olympics that were coming up. It’s a very big neighborhood for us, we’re a whole pocket of communities of different ethnicities that everybody kind of comes together, we do have 17 miles of uninterrupted lake front there, beaches, parkways, bike trails. This is one of our best views here just for the fact you have so much different color, you have different contrasts, you have the green down in millenium park, you’ve got Buckingham Fountain over there in the pink, from the ground it looks like it’s monstrous, but from up here it looks like it is almost a water fountain, the view is…
JON: You can get a little drink out of it!
RANDAL: You can take a look, you have the Chicago River here, and this is an intersting thjing for us, many years ago we reversed the flow down to St Louis. but St. Louis got us back.
JON: How did they get you back?
RANDAL: They sent it back to us as Budweiser!
JON: Ha ha!
RANDAL: Sorry! We have a beautiful shot to the north, we have John Hancock Center, Trump Tower over here, you really get a nice perspective of height.
JON: Ok, I’m really glad that I am not afraid of heights, because we are actually standing outside the building right now.
RANDAL: We took, we built 4 glass balconies outside the 103rd floor of the Willis Tower, and my parents ask me why the heck would you do that, and we really wanted to become experiencial, everybody has gone into experiencial tourism and everybody kind of wants that memory. Coming up in the tower has always been a memory, but what could we do to add to that? So we took and we put glass balconies 1353 feet over the west side of our building which is our best view down.
08:43-08:45 Next Stop logo
08:46-08:49 JON: Coming up on Next Stop, we ride around Chicago on 2 wheels.
08:50-08:52 Next Stop logo
08:54-09:05 JON: In July 2004 Mayor Richard Daley dedicated Millenium Park as a gift to the people of Chicago. This park is an enduring tribute to Chicago’s long standing history of excellence with architectural and artistic excellence.
09:06-09:08 Next Stop logo
09:12-09:54 JON: We love our Chicago home, the Conrad Chicago. What a great hotel. Now before this was a hotel…this place screams history.
CHRIS: As many Chicago landmarks do, we do as well. 1928 this was the McGraw Hill building.
JON: Really?
CHRIS: Yeah. They actually kept the skin of the building, gutted the inside and rebuilt the hotel, thus qualifying us for a historical landmark.
JON: You guys have also won some very prestigious awards.
CHRIS: Yeah, we are rated #2 in trip advisor in the city of Chicago, and that is out of 168 hotels, so…
JON: That’s amazing.
CHRIS: It doesn’t matter how high your thread count, it doesn’t matter what you serve your food on, if the service isn’t there, people aren’t coming back so, that it what we are all about, our people.
10:0011:04- JON: I personally have been very excited to meet Christine, the Marketing and Communications Manager, because you have developed a sleep menu, way more than just about pillows.
CHRISTINE: We started off with a pillow menu, and the success of that really bolstered the thought process for a sleep menu. This is a really cool product, is the anti red bull.
JON: Anti coffee too.
CHRISTINE: Anti red bull, and it really helps promote the onset of sleep, it’s all natural, or you can also rent a sound machine, which can plug into the sound pillow.
JON: We have stayed at a lot of big hotels around the world Christine, and one thing I like about the Conrad Chicago is that it is smaller it more warm, it’s more cosmopolitan, more cozy.
CHRISTINE: Absolutely. I think we have done a really good job with our rooms in terms of keeping them a little more residential, contemporary like you said, reminiscent of the guests home that they stay at, we want to make it an experience that is comfortable for them.
JON: But you also have great restaurants, including the restaurant here at the hotel.
CHRISTINE: Yeah, it’s a really great restaurant, we have a new Executive Chef, Darnell Reed, in fact he is waiting for you at Fox and Obel, I think he is going to cook up something great for you.
JON: Oh that would be awesome.
11:10-13:06 JON: You must be Darnell:
DARNELL: How are you, I’m Darnell, nice to meet you.
JON: I’m Jon Olson, I brought you a gift because I don’t like to come empty handed. You like rice Krispie bars don’t you?
DARNELL: Who doesn’t? Thank you.
JON: Ha ha! My pleasure, so what are we making and what are we shopping for?
DARNELL: New Orleans style BBQ shrimp, I have rosemary already, we need some fresh garlic.
JON: Heavy whipping cream.
DARNELL: There we go, that will work , thank you. Heavy whipping cream, and then we also need the shrimp obviously. I would like to have 5 pounds of gulf shrimp, peeled and deveined, 16 20’s.
JON: Man this shrimp is heavy, I don’t need a workout today.
DARNELL: Hey you owe me 2 bucks for the rice krispy bar.
JON: I’ve got your back.
DARNELL: OK. Just making sure.
JON: What a perfect setting. We’ve got the food, the store was an awesome store, we’ve got the ingredients, what are we going to make my friend.
DARNELL: Today we are going to be doing New Orleans style BBQ shrimp which is one of our terrace, featured terrace items. To begin, start with the olive oil, shrimp.
JON: There you go, sizzle stick.
DARNELL: Add the garlic, some rosemary, which is really the foundation you want to start with.
JON: That smells incredible.
DARNELL: And the next ingredient that I mentioned is the beer.
JON: One for the pan, one for the man.
DARNELL: the shrimp will cook before the sauce is ready, which is not a problem, we will plate the shrimp and finish the sauce and pour the sauce right over it.
JON: What a great day we had today at the Conrad Chicago and how awesome is this sleep menu, I’m going to sleep like a baby tonight. I’ve got my booties, my gloves, my mask, my sound machine and more, oh but first, Darnell I told you that I owed you 2 bucks today, I didn;t forget about it. Night night.
13:09-13:11 Next Stop logo
13:14-14:27 JON: Bike culture is big in Chicago, right?
JEREMY: Absolutely.
JON: Jeremy you are going to take us on a tour today, right?
JEREMY: We are going to take you on a tour of the neighborhoods of the near north side of Chicago.
JON: Anything special we need to know about these bikes before we take off?
JEREMY: They are deluxe Schwinn beach cruisers, they are 7 speeds, hand brakes, comfy seats, they have an annoying bell and they are all individually named.
JON: Lulu.
ED: It’s Kelly for you my friend. Right turn, left turn. Now we all have to do it, if I am the only one doing it they think I am waving at a friend and I am not clear on the whole waving concept. So can we all practice a right turn together? Excellent. Ninth year in operation, we have never had anybody hit by a moving car, we have had a handful of you ride your bikes directly into parked cars, that’s on you. the reason we stop here is not so much the museum as the neighborhood we are in, Streeterville. Michigan Avenue is about a block over that way, the reason we named it Michigan Avenue in the first place is it is the road we built along the banks of Lake Michigan when we first built the city. Water tower place, bottom 8 stories were the first ever vertical shopping mall. You look to the top of the building, Oprah has the top 2 floors.
14:35-15:11 ED: We call Illinois the land of Lincoln, we are very proud of Abraham Lincoln here, so proud we are the only state in the union that still takes pennies in our toll booths. The worlds largest free zoo is the Lincoln Park zoo, and I know normally a free zoo, you are thinking it’s going to be like 2 goats, a three legged pig and an owl that got hit by a car…this is a world class zoo, which is membership supported, I definitely recommend checking it out when you have a chance.
JON: Bobby’s bike hike, what a perfect way to spend a great afternoon in Chicago. Lulu, I’m going to miss you, you were an amazing ride.
15:15-15:17 Next Stop logo
15:18-15:23 JON: Up next on Next Stop, rooftop bar hopping, and Chicago’s own blues legend, Vino Louden.
15:27-15:29 Next Stop logo
15:30-17:19 JON: I’ve been to Chicago before, and let me tell you, Chicago’s night life is off the charts. Tonight we are going to check out a couple roof top bars. I can’t think of anybody to talk about Chicago night life more than Nick here, you have been around night life your whole life my friend, you got started at a very young age though, didn’t you.
NICK: Yes 16 in Florida, I was there for about 4 years, then moved onto Vegas where I spent another 4 years, then just recently a resident of Chicago.
JON: Chicago night life versus Vegas, they are both happening places, what’s different?
NICK: Vegas is a night life aspect of it’s own, definately is a beast, there is definitely more of a culture and a diversity in this town that really shows like that neighborhood feeling. The building in front of us is the Jewelers Building and then I wanted to look to the right is the great view of lake Michigan and Millenium Park. The Roof has already been fortunate enough to get some great awards, it was voted top ten best hotel by Travelers Magazine, best roof top hotel bar by NBC Chicago.
JON: This is a hopping night life. You’ve been in Chicago your whole life, with a little stint in Vegas like Nick, describe Chicago night life.
CHEF STEIN: Chicago night life is interesting, because once it gets warm, people want to be outside, so we wanted to provide that environment. People like to drink, people like to eat.
JON: Lots of smiles going on here, lots of drinking going on.
CHEF STEIN: Just have a good time.
NICK: You can’t leave without getting one of our signature cocktails, this one is one of our definite crowd pleasers, this is a blood orange sidecar. Giving you a nice fresh sugar rim, give it a little bit of a shake, and now the key is to try and get in here and out of here without having just one.
JON: The Roof was awesome, let’s go check out another roof top bar.
17:26-18:30 JON: We are now at Vertigo’s sky lounge above the Dana Hotel, this is Matthew, another great location man.
MATTHEW: Yeah.
JON: Your bar is a little bit different though, because you guys stay open year round.
MATTHEW: It’s an indoor outdoor place whereas some places around town kind of focus on the outside, although everybody else closes their patios, we stay open year round because we like to embrace the cold weather.
JON: Celebrate the winters. Tell our viewers how about how you celebrate the winters, because this is cool, I love it.
MATTHEW: We bought some robes and some blankets, and at first the owners of the hotel thought it was a little silly, but when they saw everybody out here at midnight with the robes on, they got the picture.
JON: Ok, on of the things I noticed about this place that I absolutely love is the unisex washing stations but better than that…the hand warmers.
MATTHEW: Oh yeah, comedy at its finest late at night.
JON: Where did you get those things?
MATTHEW: Well you know the Dana Hotel and spa is an eco friendly place, it’s a green hotel.
JON: You guys get extra points for that.
MATTHEW: Thank you very much, we care.
JON: Cheers to Chicago night life, cheers to the very cool people of Chicago, and cheers to you.
18:34-18:36 Next Stop logo
18:37-19:19 JON: Blues is king in Chicago, we are at one of the best places to see the blues live, the only way to see the blues, at Buddy Guy. I’m very pleased and honored to welcome a true Chicago blues, kind of a legend from what I am reading about you.
VINO: Thank you.
JON: Let’s talk about Chicago blues, take us back, why is Chicago such a deep rooted blues town?
VINO: I think because it is a combination of so many different types of music and styles from the south that came up here and just perculated like a good gumbo you know, it just all mixed together and it came out to be the Chicago blues you know, it got electrified here.
MUSIC
19:45-20:12 VINO: The radio station that we had, we only had one per se black radio station here in Chicago, WVON, and they played everything. They had a DJ for gospel a DJ for R&B, and a DJ for blues, Curtis Mann all night blues band, and I used to sneak up with my little transistor radio, yes, transistor radio, and hold it up to my ear and I used to listen to those guys, I didn’t know it was called blues, I just knew I liked it.
MUSIC
20:38-20:55 JON: Walking in here tonight I just felt like legends had walked this way, this is a good place to play.
VINO: Buddy cares about the music, he has good performers here, and he has a staff that knows how to handle the business.and stuff. There is some other clubs I like, but this is by far my favorite, Buddy Guy.
MUSIC
21:21-21:23 Next Stop logo
21:24-21:52 JON: Thanks for spending your last half hour with us on Next Stop, from the gorgeous windy city of Chicago Illinois. We promised you at the beginning of the show a great episode full of fun and enthusiastic locals and we know we didn’t disappoint.
