Here’s something to chew on — when it comes to fun, we’re No. 3.
That’s right, Chicago is more fun than San Francisco and Dallas, and a better time than Los Angeles and Boston, according a study of “fun” commissioned by a chewing gum company.
Atlanta, of all places, topped New York City as the country’s fun capital, the Trident-sponsored survey says.
Random folks in big cities were asked how many days a week they had fun and how expensive it is to have fun in their town, among other things. The survey found Chicagoans — 91 percent of Chicago folks surveyed — consider themselves fun people. That’s more than any other city in the top 10.
