Chicago...one month later

Thursday 3/31/2011

Well I'm EXTREMELY behind on posting.  I wasn't really sure where to start so I'll start with our last vacation...to Chicago!  We arrived around noon and took the train right down to Shannon's work to drop off our luggage and venture around before she got off.  We walked about a half mile to Sears Tower (well...now Willis Tower)  The wait was about an hour but it really didn't seem like it...and we got to enjoy a quick little movie about the history.  They have a new lookout area...which was SUPER creepy
but we took some awesome pictures from it.
Waiting to go up

The view...Shannon's red building

Great city view!

After Shannon got off work we headed back to her place to get ready for dinner with Steph, Mike, Shannon, Perry, Nicki and Keith.  We all headed over to Tango Sur for an amazing dinner and lots of good vino.  After dinner we headed over to this great bar right by Stephanie and Mike's place that has every board game imaginable...such a great idea!

Friday morning we headed over to Stephanie and Mike's for a little pre-game party before the opening Cubs game.  My friend Meghan's brother runs one of the rooftops next to Wrigley Stadium so he kindly hooked us up with VIP tickets...the venue was amazing!  Friday night we ordered in some deep dish and watched a movie :)

Saturday we headed downtown to play tourist and shop.  We walked around Grant Park, Michigan Avenue and even waited in line for over an hour for Garretts Popcorn!  We relaxed a bit before dinner at a great little italian place, Via Carducci.  Such a great trip and always amazing to catch up with friends.
