You can either pay an $18 admission fee or go up for a $16 cocktail. Obviously I chose the cocktail.

My love and I spent the 4th of July weekend in Chicago. We were in town visiting friends and got the perfect blend of tourist time+quality time with friends. This was the husband’s first trip to this wonderful city, so we ate lots (hot dogs and deep-dish, the BEST cinnamon roll of my life at Ann Sathers, and a great boozy, iced coffee at The Little Goat), and did the regular tourist stops (the Bean, Millenium Park, top of the Hancock for drinks, etc). We both spent the weekend talking about how we wouldn’t mind living in Chicago, and how cool it is to see a major city sit RIGHT on the water. Even though Lake Michigan isn’t an ocean, it certainly looks like one sometimes. We’re officially jealous of all of you who live in Chi-town. Just let me know if the winters are as bad as they sound ;)
