New York resident Robert Chernow was expecting to have a blast in the “Windy City” over the extended Labor Day weekend for a buddy's bachelor party, but fate would have none of it.
Jake Katz, friend of Chernow and groom-to-be, could not make it to Chicago on schedule and instead arrived two days late — thanks to flight delays — leaving poor Chernow to fend for himself. But, instead of sitting around his hotel room moping (or binge watching Netflix), Chernow took in Chicago Cubs and Bears games, visited Navy Pier, made new "friends," and dined at various food establishments in the area. Alone.
He documented his (apparently not-so-fun) time on his Instagram account, which quickly accumulated over 14,000 followers over the holiday weekend, using the hashtag #ChicagoForOne.
