Local Experts: Chicago, Amy Tara Koch

I am a globetrotter, but I always yearn to get back to Sweet Home Chicago. Once dubbed Paris on the Prairie, Chi-town is as sophisticated as it is friendly. And I have the great fortune to report on all things trending in the Windy City. Over the past decade, I have served as columnist for Chicago Tribune, trend reporter for NBC Chicago and contributor to Chicago Sun Times, Four Seasons Magazine and Departures.
