Day two in Chicago started with a monsoon. Seriously, I have never seen it rain that hard ever. The Husband sweetly went out to get me coffee in the morning and by the time he got back, it looked like he had jumped into a lake. Predictably, I had another mini meltdown when I was told we would be cancelling our sightseeing activities. So instead of our architectural boat tour, we ate more pizza and then went in search of umbrellas and some covered shopping on Magnificent Mile. Miraculously, by mid-afternoon the sun came out and the boat tour was on again. Seeing the gorgeous city from the river definitely tops my list of fav activities. We also caught glimpses of the air and water show!
After the tour, we went over to the Hancock Building to see the spectacular view people rave about. We had a drink at the Signature Room, took loads of pictures of ourselves against the backdrop and I finally felt like I had seen Chicago! Fast forward to more free wine and rest before going out to dinner at Japonais, which came highly recommended by lots of Chicago bloggers. And I’d like to thank them because we had the most insane chocolate-filled donuts and green tea ice cream for dessert. Also, I can’t stop fantasizing about the miso soup. After dinner, we took our young asses to the club. I think it was called Sound Bar and even though it’s not my typical scene it was fun. Anytime I have bottle service and a table to sit at I have fun. Another extremely late night followed by a 6 a.m. wake-up call. Then we went home and I slept for 12 hours straight. The end!
