We spent four fun-filled days chilling here this weekend ….
We headed down with a purpose. My friend, Chicago Karen was getting married! … Woohoo Karen & Paul! But in between eating and eating and eating, we did get a chance to do a little sightseeing here and there. Chicago, in many ways, puts Toronto to shame with its focus on tourism and more so, architecture and proper urban planning. Eprops to Chicago for this!
We stayed at W right downtown in the Loop. It was gorgeous and fun and funky.
1) W Chicago; 2) the very funky lobby at night
3) our lovely room; 4) parking in the Loop … a nightmare; everything’s valet (bring lots of US$1 bills); 5) G heads to the CTA
6) Charlie Trotter’s; 7) me feeling good after dinner at Charlie’s
But, on to more food! …. another thing we wanted to try while in Chicago was “Deep Dish Pizza”. Deep dish actually was invented in Chicago in 1943 at a little place north of the Loop called, Pizzeria Uno. We tried it and liked it … till we came across the competition, a chain called Giordano’s. Winner, handsdown!
More food, fun and silly wedding fotos soon but I’m knackered and so, to bed.
