You Know You Live On The Southside of Chicago When... aren't even Irish but you go the the St. Patrick's Day parade religiously. know a "guy" for everything from tires to cut rate beef steaks. honk before pulling from an alley into the street.'ve purchased the most useful things at the swap meet.

...whether you're white, black, Hispanic, you know at least one other language conversationally. aren't afraid of pitbulls and think they are the friendliest dogs on the planet. never show up to a barbecue empty handed. enjoy your wine out of a red solo cup. honk on street cleaning day so your neighbors move their cars too. and your neighbor get together to shovel snow in front of the homes of elderly people.

...your idea of a good time is a grill, some beer and a handful of friends.'ve agreed with nearly everything on this list.
