Chicago: Day 1

It took me long enough, but I finally got around to sorting through the photos from our whirlwind trip to Chicago with my brother and his gorgeous gf. We were only there for two full days so we had to cram in a hell of a lot of eating, drinking and sightseeing in 48 hours.

Day 1 started at Wrigley Field (post camera battery-meltdown). It was like the most crowded game since 1978 or something. Lucky me right?! We bar hopped in Wrigleyville before entering the historic stadium for some good ol’ fashion baseball. Unfortunately we didn’t stay till the 7th inning stretch since we had to head over to Millennium Park and take 300 pictures of our reflections in the Bean. We also had to eat deep dish pizza since the closest thing we have in Southern California is BJs.

Then it was a walk through the city back to our hotel where we indulged in a wine happy hour courtesy of Hotel Allegro (because free wine is awesome) before getting ready for a late dinner at Frontera. We didn’t have reservations (which you supposedly need to make months in advance), but my brother charmed the hostess into giving us a table immediately and I felt like I was Beyonce or something. After indulging in champagne margaritas, portabella mushroom tacos and lots of guac, we drank our way through the bars in River North until it was well past my bedtime.

Come back tomorrow for the recap of day 2 in Chicago!
