In the spirit of Harold and Kumar Go To White Castle, we decided to create our own version called Brent & G Visit White Castle. White Castle burgers, according to our friends in Chicago, are more affectionately known as ‘sliders’ for reasons which – I hope – are pretty obvious. A fascinating tidbit here: you can actually buy a briefcase full of 30 mini burgers at White Castle! OMG, like, trailer park ghetto heaven.

G, being an architect and all, meant a Chicago architectural tour with the Chicago Architecture Foundation. These folks put on dozens of tours and I’d highly recommend you join one while in town. We opted for the river tour that was a steal at US$25 and 90 minutes long.
