USA: 22 Hrs in Chicago, IL,23 April 2016

Chicago Skyline from U.S. Cellular Field

07 00: Boy, am I thankful that our hotel let us check in early! ZZZ 11 00: Time to haul ass. We have reservations at Mexique, a French-Mexican place I saw on Top Chef. The Chilaquiles at brunch was amazing, and brunch only cost us $30 for two of us!

12 00: Uber to US Cellular Field. Metro would have taken too long. I tried to find their famous bacon on a stick, but I couldn’t find it. šŸ˜¦

15 00: I’m not built for red-eyes. I was nodding off during the game.Ā P.S. You can take amazing photographs of the Chicago skyline from US Cellular Field!

16 00: Chicago is a nice city. We had a nice walk around the downtown, and followed the path along the Chicago River.

17 30: I wanted to go to a Jazz or Blues club, but the one we walked into was closed for a private event. We ended up at Dick’s Last Resort, which is more up my partner’s wheelhouse. They give rudeĀ service on purpose, and give you hats with insults. The BBQ platter was awesome!

19 00: Metro back to our hotel near O’Hare. There was a Dunkin Donuts shop at the metro. Score!

20 00: ZZZ. I passed out until it was time to leave for our 6 am flight the next day.
