For Chicago lifers, what’s the rite of passage before a transplant can really consider themselves a Chicagoan (if ever)? I’ve lived here a few years, pay a boatload in taxes, survived the polar vortex, been delayed countless times at ORD, and have eaten a thousand Chicago Dogs (and have opinions about where to find the best). Other than place of birth, what qualities or experiences do you feel make a “Chicagoan”?
