Sorry friends, this post has little to do with hockey. Except it was inspired by the Stanley Cup Finals and had me pitting Boston and Chicago against each other in more ways than goals and power plays.
Both are great cities, for sure. Both have great restaurants, cultural events, green space, academic institutions, mind-boggling traffic, wack accents, silly politicians, traditions of saving shoveled parking spots with household items, etc.
But there are a few things that Boston has that you just won't find anywhere else.

Do it for Boston! Do it for Chicago! Do it for no good reason at all! Like No Bags to Check on Facebook.
