Chicago is AWESOME!

After returning from there about 2 years ago and going on and on about how great the food was....... My wife said she wasnt going to drive 600 miles just to eat. LOL.
Well, now she says she would love to live there.

We ate at some great places, I dont have my notes handy so I cant remember all the names, will post them later.

But my personal favorites were a Puerto Rican Restaurant and the Greek Isles Restaurant.

Did The John Hancock building...$11.50 martinis....... sigh.
Architectural Boat Tour
Navy Pier
Lincoln Park
Millenium Park
The Field Museum
Taste of Chicago Mmmmmmmm Goat Biryani
Wrigleyville, uh, boys town was, uh, kinda interesting.......
Frank L Wright tour
The B'Hai Temple, how peaceful it was in there.
A local Carol Stream Hindi Temple, all carved from wood.
This just touches the surface, we spent 12-14 hour days just touring and my feet are killing me and my pants dont fit any more.

Speaking of "Boystown", there is a store on N. Haltead [on a corner], call Gay-Mart. It has really cool Disney, Wizard of Oz, Superhero stuff {toys, figurines, etc.]

Really cool store!!

And it's even quirkier and cooler when you do it with someone else.
