Hughes or Lose

when life hands you a day in Chicago with nothing to do, and a super ill Rabbi with a car (and a lot of salami) offering to take you and yer lovely wife anywhere, you go movie location sightseeing, right????

I mean, Chicago and its burbs are home to many a John Hughes movies, and if you don’t want to revisit the places where John Hughes movies were shot, you probably should be shot, right???

well, this is the John Hughes driving tour I quickly cobbled together (which MUCH help from this site)…
