Tour de Chicago

Red Hen Bread — super yummy

Let’s see…what did we do? Drinks on the 96th floor (my way-too-sweet Green Envy Margarita went unfinished, but the view was great). Breakfast at the Elephant & Castle where we were attended by a smart-ass waiter named Chris, who I do believe called me obnoxious — the nerve! Tour of Wicker Park and Bucktown, which included cool houses, a cool bakery (see above), a cool bar (Charleston Bar on Hoyne), and a cool church (St. Hedwig’s). Ice cream sundaes at Margie’s Candies. Downpour along Armitage with no shelter in sight. Drenched. Bus ride back to Lincoln Park. Cab ride back to hotel. Shower. Shopping at P.O.S.H. Dinner at Reza’s with the doors next to our table open to a glorious summer evening. Wicked at the Ford Theater. Sleep. Breakfast at Cambridge House. Driving tour of Hyde Park. And finally back on the road.
