I forgot to mention, I went to Chicago in April. The city definitely lives up to it’s title, our umbrellas had multiple near death experiences in the Windy City. Chicago has always been a city I’ve wanted to visit and so I can now check this one off my bucket list (which does not currently exist). Chicago is actually quite similar Toronto, other than the beautiful architecture. And so here is a brief photo diary of our adventures.
Loved the Bean (the Cloud Gate) in Millenium Park. Toronto needs something like this.
Not deep dish, but best pizza I’ve ever had, worth the wait Piece Pizza. Love the logo.
Fried chicken & waffles at The Red Canary.
Oh ya we also got BOTTOMLESS mimosas for $18. Best idea ever.
Wrigley Field, home of the Cubs.
We also went up the Sears Tower, which was a huge let down (maybe because it was raining). Who wants to see 4 states anyways?! Not even worth the $17, next time more mimosas. I’ll stick with the CN Tower.
Some other honourable mentions: Delilah’s – $2 Pabst Blue Ribbon (on Wednesdays, $3 otherwise) & $2 whiskey shots. HUB51 – waited 3 days to get a reservation, but the fish tacos were the tits (I Love You Man, anyone?). Rockit Bar & Grill – delicious burgers.
Despite the rain the city was in full Playoff mode (Bulls & Blackhawks), so there was always something going on. Our last day we shopped, and unfortunately & surprisingly for me, I only bought 2 nail lacquers and a pair of sunglasses from H&M, lame I know. Later we stopped by House of Blues where a local blues band was playing. Can’t get enough of the blues.
Though there were no Oprah, Lupe or Kanye hangouts, I’m quite fond of Chicago, and like I had predicted I could totally see myself living amongst the wind.
