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.

  1. this sounds like a delicious couple of days! but i’m curious: why did the s-a waiter call you obnoxious? 🙂

  2. Oh, well, I guess I should have told the WHOLE story on that one. He was being a bit of a smarty-pants, so I returned the favor a few times myself. Not the innocent party, really. And he said it mostly in jest. I wasn’t offended. For long at least. 🙂

  3. Looks like you had a fab weekend in Chicago – far more better than my one day in the windy city. Thanks for the links too!

  4. Patti: Wow, woman, you sure do like to hear the details! I had Reza’s Special Chicken, hummus and two glasses of Shiraz, served up by a cute Romanian guy. 🙂

    Lisa: Wicked was OK. I read the book, which may have spoiled it for me. It’s WAYYYY different. But I enjoyed it mostly.

    Marie: Glad you got to take Melissa downtown. Hopefully you had a good visit with your parents.
