Helloooo! Long time no see!
We had a whirlwind weekend in Chicago full of great food, lots of walks, museum visits, comedy shows, and even some law school visits. There is sooo much to write about, so I think I might just let the pictures from the weekend speak for themselves.
Weirdly, we ate only two meals a day in Chicago, mostly because we would eat big breakfasts/ brunch and then just walk the city for the day. Before we knew it, it was dark and time for dinner. We swam each morning in the hotel’s pool for about 30 minutes, so we got plenty of great exercise.
Anyhow, let the photo tour begin!
Breakfast at Tempo’s (HUGE greek frittata)
Saturday was a GORGEOUS day so we walked the city…
We hit up Millenium Park…. how cool is this stage??
There was such a smart design- the speakers are spread out over the lawn behind the stage.
The incredible Art Institute is right in the park.
The entrance is awesome…
So many Monets!
Dinner on Saturday was a turkey pastrami sammie from a deli… long story… it was a long day!
So, Sunday, we were huuuungry for a big brunch. We met Loren’s best friend from home for brunch at Cafe Lula in Logan Square.
I ordered the breakfast burrito. It was filled with scrambled eggs, cheese, avocado, tomato, and potatoes… and it was AWESOME!
Josh took us on a long walk through some great Chicago neighborhoods in Wicker Park to show us the crazy, cool architecture.
We headed back to the North Side for a comedy show at Second City and a quick dinner at a Middle Eastern place beforehand. I got a greek salad and some Labne (yogurt) on the side. It was delish, but it REEEEALLY made my stomach hurt afterwards (no more details will be given here).
The Second City Show was hilarious! Some of the best comedy I have ever seen. It really did live up to its name, so if you are in town, I suggest you pay it a visit!
I ordered Eggs Benedict, but just ate the poached eggs and bread- no ham or potatoes for me. My stomach was still feeling a bit off. But it didn’t go to waste- Loren ate it all plus his own!
On the way to the airport/ before the flight home, I had a baked potato with fixins (not pictured— too rushed) and a fruit smoothie.
