What's the best way to see Chicago?
Let's go for a run. C'mon...I know it's only 25 degrees out, the key to the cold is layers. Just layer up and let's go...Welcome to my favorite view of the city. I see this every time I run...winter, spring, summer, fall. You can't beat this view;)
Cold yet? Cool...let's get down to Michigan Ave...
There it is...Corner of Michigan and Oak. Shopping, shopping, shopping.
Wait...whad'ya mean you're cold? Did you layer?
Little Man isn't cold. Buck up and keep running;) Let's head down Oak St.
Ummm...in the imaginary world, I can actually afford to shop here...and here...and here.
*sigh* Me likey the imaginary world:)
Say hello to what we locals like to call "The Viagra Triangle". Yep, I can't make this stuff up folks. The Whiskey, Gibson's, and Tavern on Rush. Let me sum it up for you...Young girls, and rich old guys. You do the math. It really is a sight to see. In my single days we would go just to check out the scene...
Once you get sick of watching the V.T. games, I highly recommend a plate of spaghetti at Carmine's (good Lord I haven't been there in SO long)...and don't forget to finish it off with a nightcap at PJ Clarke's...oh the nights I spent there...(seems like another lifetime now)
Seen enough? Me too...
Let's head back to the park...
Yes there's a big red barn right smack dab in the middle of the city. This would be The Little Man's favorite haunt. How could it not be with the John Deere tractor inside that he can sit in?
OK, I get it...you're cold. It was a good five mile run. Pat yourself on the back...you should be proud of yourself:) You can head inside.
I gotta go to The Zoo with The Little Man. Got a date with a penguin don'cha know;)
