The food, first of all, was amazing. We ate at a Cuban spot, a Cajun spot and a yummy brunch spot and everything was delicious. I'm especially yearning for the tostones rellenos I ate at 90 Miles Cuban Cafe. I'll be cooking those at home sooner rather than later; trust!
Then, I must add, the city itself was correctly described by Alex as a "smaller, cleaner version of New York City" and I have to agree. For being a major city, Chicago is incredibly tidy! We decided it's because the city has and utilizes the alleys for it's trash instead of the curbside system that works so well (sarcasm!) for us here in NY.
Finally, HOLY SHIZNIT- THE BEACH IS ACROSS THE STREET FROM MY HOTEL! I'm in love with the entire concept of Lake Shore Drive and Navy Pier and Lake Michigan and I'm already trying to see if I can return in the dead of summer so I can chill on the beach in an itsy-bitsy, teeny-weeny, yellow, polka-dot bikini!

*smooches...already looking at my next travel dates*
I have so many trips to take this and next year, though, I should pace myself.
