We're still a little unclear on Twerking. 

"What is twerking" and "how to twerk" were the top "what is" and "how to" searches in Chicago, according to Google's annual "Zeitgeist," a breakdown of popular trends on the search engine. 

Gibson's Bar and Steakhouse won out as the most-searched local restaurant, with appearances by Shaw's Crab House, The Girl and the Goat and Graham Elliot. (You can see the full restaurant ranking in the gallery above.)

The top trending search in the city was "paul walker," followed by "blackhawks." Those beat out more national topics including "Boston Marathon," "iPhone 5S" and "government shutdown."
