Thursday :

I thought this city was just going to be some dumb midwest place, but Chicago fucking rules. It's a real city. It has also made me realize how TINY Boston is.

But the people here are super cool and the bars we've gone to have been a lot of fun. And the city just looks awesome. It's so visually appealing. I was also surprised at how fashionable everyone here is. I just assumed fat guys in Bears shirts, but its not at all (although I really want to burn down the Ugg store).

My favorite moment so far was walking by a Lamborghini / Bentley dealership (*swoon*) and seeing a fucking Bugatti Veyron sitting out front. I had no idea there were so many rich people out here.

Although, could you move the fucking airport closer to downtown? 45 minutes to get to downtown is retarded.

So Chicago, I'm absolutely blown away. I thought it would be another Cleveland or something, but I was so, so wrong. Maybe my whole view on the Midwest is wrong.

We also went to a bar on N Ravine called The Annoyance and it was one of the best bars I've ever been to. I highly suggest it to anyone who is looking for a place to drink in Chicago

Friday :

We walked for like 4 hours yesterday. Then finished the day at The Green Mill for a live 15 piece band. It was awesome.

Also, 24 hour subway is the fucking best.

I really want to grab all my shit and move the fuck out here.

After going to the John Hancock Observatory and then on to Molly's, we stumbled into a place called The Other Side Bar, where we proceeded to spend the 75 degree day getting wasted and eating the best pizza I have ever eaten. And it wasn't even that deep dish stuff, just the straight best pizza I've ever had.

And walking around Lincoln Park made me want to move right away.

Chicago fucking rules.

Saturday :

We went to O'Callahan's last night and watched what must have been "Sluttiest Costume Contest" line up outside of the place next door.

I saw more bottom of ass cheeks last night than I could ever count. I'm pretty sure every single girl in Chicago went as a Naughty something. But I think some of the girls going into that place were going as Naughty Sluts.

Sunday :

Did the Architectural Tour, which was cold but a lot of fun. Chicago has some really amazing buildings.

Yesterday, we went to Chicago Pizza and Oven Grinder Co. We had to wait almost 2 hours for a table and it was so fucking worth it. While we were waiting, every single person who walked out made a comment about it being worth the wait and they weren't kidding. My wife got the Pizza Pot Pie and I got a sausage grinder. It was so fucking good. I highly recommend this place, but go hungry. The amount of food put in front of you is fucking obscene.

After that, we went and did the nighttime John Hancock Observatory thing. Chicago is beautiful all lit up. Once we went back downstairs, we went back up to drink in the Signature Bar on the 96th floor. That was a lot of fun. We got up there just in time, too. As we left, the line to get into the bar was stretched all the way around the corner. And my wife got to get the best view of Chicago, which is supposedly out of the women's restroom on the 96th floor.

Chicago rules. I'm sad to be home. I really would love to live in Chicago.

it is an amazing city. i would love to go back. Signature Bar raped us on drinks but yes, the ladies room view is INCREDIBLE. it's worth seeing the city all lit up at night from that view.

Did you notice how clean the city is? And i loved hearing the sound of saxophone players on the street corners.

le sigh.

Yeah, the city was unbelievably clean.

I also noticed an abundance of homeless people, but none of them were aggressive at all. They just sat outside of places, but they were everywhere. And Greenpeace people were everywhere, as well.
