Mike Magee's guide to Chicago

Want to be like Mike? Here's a little trivia about the Fire forward.

Favorite Chicago spot: Jam in Logan Square. His cousin owns the joint.

Best brunch: Tavern on Rush

Need something healthy: Protein Bar in River North

Hot dog joint: "I don't do hot dogs. But Mr. Beef is my spot."

Pizza place: Armand's Pizza. Or Giordano's, if you can't find an Armand's.

Best music venue: House of Blues

Memorable Chicago moments: "Bears and Bulls games were always my kind of thing." He sat through most of the Michael Jordan era and was at Super Bowl XLI, which the Bears lost to Indianapolis. "That was devastating. The first 10 seconds were great though."

Wants to score a goal on: Brett Favre

If he didn't play soccer: "I like to think I'd be playing baseball, I was decent. If you're not thinking sports? I'd probably be a bum."

Who is Mike Magee: "I'm just somebody who like to laugh and likes to be around my family."
