We’re Going To…

Guess where we’ll be this time next week? Chicago! I think I’ve told you before that I haven’t seen much of the US of A and we’re attempting to change that.

On the itinerary so far:

  • Baseball game at Wrigley Field (the Cubs vs. the Cardinals – apparently that’s a big deal or something)
  • Drinks at the top of the John Hancock building
  • Fine dining
  • Spending money along Magnificent Mile

Currently accepting any and all recommendations. Especially with restaurants. Please help. Happy Friday!

By the way, how incredible are these images of Chicago? They’re taken by Alicia Bock whose photography captivates me. I use the term “captivates” only when I mean it. Seriously, I want to fill my walls with her photos.

    I live in Chicago, so sometimes I take our amazing city for granted. I second all the fun suggestions on here. Some other things to check out: Art Institute and the amazing outdoor terrace off the modern wing, Signature Room for Brunch (John Hancock bldg), Millennium Park, any of the bars in the vicinity of Hubbard St (EPIC & Hub51 included), eat along the river (BridgeHouse Tavern, Flatwater, or Japonias), and check out the trendy restaurants (i.e. Sunda, Mercidito, Paris Club, and the Girl and the Goat- if you’re a TopChef fan). Hope you have a fabulous time!

    PS. I heart your blog🙂

    I hope you recap your Chi town trip because I’m heading there for the first time Labor Day weekend. The Signature Room in the Hancock Building is on our list too. I heard it’s a must. Have fun!

    Have a great time! I went like 9 years ago and before I was into food, so my friend and I dined at….wait for it…. rainforest cafe. Did I really just go public with that? So yeah, I don’t recommend going there.

    Rick Bayless’s Fronetra is supposed to be gourmet Mexican. Sorry, that’s all I got for you.
