Oak park vs. Evanston - thoughts?

Evanston can be pretty pompous, well the whole north shore is pretty full of itself. But they do have the original Sarkis cafe up there and I’m quite smitten with bacon lorettas.

But even without Sarkis and how boujie Evanston is, I’d still take Evanston over Oak Park.


Smoke Park

Evanston for me. Closer to the water!

They're both so similar to be honest. I live just south of Evanston in Rogers Park but I cover Oak Park for work. Id prefer Evanston due to its proximity to the lakefront but i hear the taxes are outrageous

VZW is a terrible phone network for consulting. No internet while on a call is a handicap. Then again, most EY's IT infra is a handicap.

My face starts to flake now that I’m traveling, especially in the morning after sleeping in the hotel. But I would say that other parts of my face remain on the oily side. Face-wash options?
