Gorgeous view from the Ladies washroom in the John Hancock Center... Yes we went up all 96 floors just to use the *washroom*

I’ve officially returned to Hog Town, and though I may not be totally rested, it was a much needed break from work and I now feel ‘rejuvenated’.  Chicago was glorious; we did a lot of walking around and discovered many cool neighbourhoods in the city (my favorites being Wicker Park and Andersonville). I sipped on many a delicious drink, ate tons of good food, saw the ‘bean’, laughed with my girls and even had a guided tour around the Chicago Art Institute by our friend/art student, Harry. The fall weather seemed to have blown away and our cheeks were kissed with a warm sun reminiscent of a late August day. Here are a few pictures and tidbits from my trip (almost all revolve around the drinks that were had…). Cheers!

Amazing 'Dark and Stormy' and 'The Wait List' from Chicago's G&T Oysters

Scallops, acorn squash, candied bacon, and brussels sprouts
from G&T Oysters, check out their menu here.
I dare you to find one thing on their menu you wouldn't want to try,
I could just write a separate post solely on the amazingness of this resto.

Walking around Wicker Park

The beautiful details on the drinks at the extremely divine Violet Hour Speakeasy, a must-do in Chicago. 

The BEAN: which is the real Steph and Allie?

Deep Dishing in Chicago, a scary but amazing mix.
