Chicago has no shortage of spots to “hang out.”
The city is a social, cultural and entertainment destination with parks, museums, sports, beaches and any number of fine dining options.
For Anthony Rizzo, though, the best city hangout is … Chipotle.
That’s right, Chipotle Mexican Grill, the fast-food chain once owned by McDonald’s that specializes in Tex-Mex, is the favorite Chicago hangout of the Cubs’ All-Star first baseman.
Rizzo revealed this bit of news during his Facebook Q&A with fans Wednesday.
“Anthony, the city of Chicago loves you!” said Facebook user Han Jin. “What’s your favorite spot in the city to hang out at?”
Rizzo gave a one-word response: “Chipotle.”
It’s hard to tell how serious Rizzo was with the answer, given that he agreed to go on a date with another user and accepted another’s marriage proposal. Still, the Chipotle response is a regrettable one for anyone who calls Chicago home.
He could have at least said Portillo’s if he wanted something in the fast-food arena. Or how about Frontera Grill if he wanted to stick with the Mexican food theme. And, hey! It’s even on Clark Street.
