Armed with a few days off and Ferris Bueller as our guide, we hit Chicago for a few days
last week. Thanks to the PERFECT weather (79 degrees!), Chicago is so much better
than we expected - extremely walkable, great public transportation, AMAZING food,
super friendly people. Walking around, we felt so connected to the city and the people
-- We don't have pictures of it here, but we totally recommend The Purple Pig for
fantastic tapas, Joy Yee's Noodle Shop for Hong Kong style cafe food and a humungous
boba tea selection. Also, we stayed at the ACME Hotel in downtown - excellent price,
accommodations, and location.
Our city guide and our fashion inspriation...
Jully's take on Cameron and Derek's take on Ferris.
Vynsie's take on Sloane.
LOVE all the architecture in Chicago.
Chicago's skyline is so underrated.
The bean at Millennium Park was pure chaos and awesomeness. While we were there, there was a free
outdoor concert in their stunning outdoor amphitheater. Talk about engaging the city with the people in it.
Came across a fantastic mural on the way to Reckless Records.
Nerding out at Graham Crackers Comic Book shop.
Gourmet comfort food (fried egg on french fries!), community seating, at The Publican.
PERFECT SUMMER DAY at Wrigley Field.
Fancy fancy by the Chicago Stock Exchange.
