Moving to Racine
Hello, all. Well, as the title states, I (with my girlfriend) am moving to Racine. I'm not exactly sure what I'm looking for here (I don't mean in the city, but on this site) . . . aside from my girlfriend's job that she got through AmeriCorps I'm going to be in need of a job. We're also looking for a place to live, of course - what neighborhoods or areas of Racine are the best, have the most going on, best nightlife, best food, etc. I guess I'm just looking for opinions here.
Also, in terms of moving into town we had the idea of possibly crashing with someone, or a group of people, who have a house with extra space for a couple for a short time while we look around, or, if anyone is looking for roommates we'd be curious about moving in with him/her maybe.
So, to sum up: What's good in Racine? Where do we want to live? Can we stay with you for a bit? Need a roommate? What can you tell us about the city? I've waited tables, I love love love coffee and the barista trade. I'm a photographer/poet/writer/creative myself. If anyone knows of places that are, or may be hiring in the near future, any leads would be appreciated.
Thanks loads for any help you may be able to give!
