John Cusack fans won’t have much luck finding Championship Vinyl, the record store from High Fidelity, because the store never actually existed. But just a few storefronts away from the Wicker Park location of Championship is a hipster-filled find called Reckless Records, where vinyl lovers can spend hours flipping through records (along with CDs, DVDs, t-shirts, and more) and swapping music trivia with the record-store-cool staff. The store also has a small shop in the Loop (26 E. Madison St., at Wabash Ave.; [tel] 312/795-0878) and another in Lakeview (3126 N. Broadway, at Briar Pl.; [tel] 773/404-5080).
