"Look up, and baby you'll see the light"
As we exited the train onto Grand and made our way out into the streets, I was warmly welcomed by the sun and quickly shuffled into the crowd. I actively watched people sweep through their own lanes with their headphones on and the rest of the world off. Me, on the other hand, I was too busy looking up. The architecture in Chicago is too beautiful not to pay attention to.
Ok.. onto the goods. Art is first, food follows..
Beauty In All Shapes & Sizes
Museum of Contemporary Art
Green Mill Jazz Club
Girl & The Goat
This is one of the top restaurants in Chicago right now. We had a reservation made months in advance (10:15pm on a Monday was the only spot open) and I unfortunately barely remember visiting.. why? Well, this was my first night in town and we started drinking pretty early..... Needless to say, I was drunk for this experience.
SO, even though I know the food was amazing from the little I remember, my photos of the experience, not so much! Woops!
The daily happy hour spot. Who doesn't like a $2 taco and cheap Mexican beer? Had some great mezcal here. If only I can remember the names of the brands...
Delicious Asian food and craft cocktails? Yes please.
Lou Malnati's Pizzeria
A family-owned local chain pizzeria that I just had to visit for some famous deep dish pizza.
