Spotter in the Spotlight: Ben Kopel from Chicago

Our Spotter Ben Kopel is quite the traveler, having lived in the midwest, but also in Saudi Arabia and Australia and he has visited over 35 countries. Luckily for us, he moved to Chicago where he has lived for ten years now! He became a Spotter in Chicago because he loves the city and everything it has to offer from unique neighborhoods to a great food scene.

Here are some of Ben’s favorite spots for you to fall in love with:

“Opened in 2010, Chicago Distilling Company is a small batch distillery in Logan Square. Right now, they are making gin, vodka and a white whiskey and their cocktail menu has something for everyone!”

“Typically I would say that a zoo is touristy, but a lot of locals go to Lincoln Park Zoo. I think the main reasons for this are (1) it’s a good zoo and (2) it’s free. The zoo has various events throughout the year and is located in a nice area!”

Uncommon Ground

“Uncommon Ground is near Wrigley Field and is a great place to hang out and enjoy an evening with friends, family or a date.  It is a very unique and diverse spot that serves up local and organic comfort food and they also have live music and open mic nights!”
