Hey UPchicago readers!

Winter is coming. In fact — holy crap! — it’s here. Yep, it’s December. Christmas is around the corner. Then New Years. Then three long months of cold, blustery winter. One our favorite ways to stay warm and jolly throughout winter is by stuffing our faces with good food and spending time with friends and family.

So, we’re very excited to announce our next giveaway: The UPchicago Favorite Things Photo Contest.

To enter, send us your best photo of one of your “favorite things” in Chicago. Whether it’s your favorite skyline view, L stop, café sign, kitchen-table-sized pothole… whatever it is, we wanna know what makes you fall head-over-heels in love with this city over and over again.

The winners get one of our favorite things: a gift certificate to Kith & Kin (read: Friends & Family) This inviting (and deelish!) restaurant in Lincoln Park is the perfect place to warm your spirits and fill your belly on a cold night.

We’ll pick two winning photos to feature on the site, and create a slideshow of our other favorites. So get out there with your camera and show us a few of your favorite things!
