A night away

We spent the last two days in Chicago. A little overnight trip to break up the stay part of the staycation. Plus, we had to get Beerman away from work for a few days, which isn't always the easiest.

We went to the Adler Planetarium, since we hadn't been. (And seriously, I've been a space geek for.ever.) It was cool. It's a lot quicker to go through than some of the other museums in the area, but it was still nice to see.

And since it's next door to the Shedd Aquarium, where we are current members, we stopped in to say hello to a few of our favorite friends.

Of course, there were several really nice meals in-between. Between Skrine Chops, trying to go to a hipster place and ending up at Green Street Smoked Meats, and a Lou Mitchell's breakfast, we were constantly full.

I finally checked #22 off my list. Willis Tower. Check. C-man loved the clear boxes with the panoramic views.

And, of course, the child had a Lego gift card burning a hole in his pocket.

Trains, walking, cabs... It was a nice break away.
