My kind of town.....
 The rest of the song line is, Chicago is.  Chicago had so much in making me who I am.  And that includes, a Gene and Judes Vienna hot dog fan, a father and son pizza fan, a Grant park taste of Chicago fan, a Blackhawks fan, a Da Bears fan, and most importantly a Chicago Cubs fan, and Wrigley Field where they play. 

 Chicago is notable for, the best skyline in the world, dirty politics, pizza, and the most professional sports teams in the U.S.A..

 What is your home town known for?

No it is where a white male like you is replaced with someone of differing sex/race/sexuality.

 I have no idea what my "hometown" is known for, but where I am now is known for its laid back tropical lifestyle, partying, and gay pride. And rum. Oh...and Ernest Hemingway. Probably more, but I don't know.

The city I'd like to claim (and one day will) is known for its rain and crappy sports teams.

I'll just let this paragraph on askmen.com sum it up.

(Fun fact: a lot of bars back home had MLB players and umps etc on their payroll. Why? Because only 'employees' could drink after hours from 3 am on. LOL, I'm not sure if Ziggy still has their time cards, but it was one of the greatest "behind the curtain" experiences of my life.)
For this.  
#32 | 1051 days ago

Hmm...  The town I grew up in would be known for The Boardwalk ...


Is also known as "Surf City"


and for I guess for lack of a better term...  A large "counter culture" life style.


The city I live in now is the self proclaimed "Capital of the Silicon Valley".  They even say so on their city logo....



Of course, many of the high tech companies are HQ'd in neighboring cities but let's not spoil the civic pride!

Silver Mountain and Lookout Pass ski hills within 30 miles of each other



and Dave Smith Motors, Chrysler and GM dealer. I don't know what kind of volume they do now, but when I worked there people from all over the country came to buy vehicles there - we sold about 700-800 vehicles/month.

Lived in Spokane from 90 to 96, always loved Coeur d' alene.  Absolutely beautiful place!  Went back thru there this past summer on a harley trip and stayed at a B&B downtown, also did the lake dinner cruise and eat at my favorite steak house in the WORLD--Wolf Creek Lodge.

It really is a beautiful place. I love Spokane and all the culture, and hockey there! And of course Gonzaga bball games. I just never fit in in north Idaho. It's gorgeous and I love to visit my friends and family when I have the chance but I don't think I'll ever end up back there for good.

Wolf Lodge is great - not only are their steaks fantastic but their drinks aren't too shabby either! We used to have work parties there; we had what was called the "steak and beans" contest...the sales force was divided into two teams, and the team who sold the most vehicles got a steak dinner while the other team had to eat beans. Since I had to print out the contracts for ALL of the sales, I always got to eat steak. The dinner was usually at Wolf Lodge.
