The biggest question here in Chicago, more so than will the Cubs ever break the curse and win a World’s Series again, is “where is the best city view?” I found it, quite by mistake and later confirmed by my tour guide. Through the floor to ceiling windows in the Ladies Room on the 96th floor in the Signature Lounge of the John Hancock Building are the most spectacular views of Chicago. Sorry gentlemen, this one is for us gals only.
Serendipity, one of life’s special little gifts. Something unexpected, out of the blue, and always well received. Yesterday was a terrible day in Chicago, cold, pouring buckets of rain but Himself and I made a grand day of it by huddling in one of those tourist trap trolley tours. In drenching rain it proved the best way to see the city. The tour guides were extra fun, the tips extra high, because everyone was making lemonade out of lemons. When Himself and I stopped for cocktails at the Signature Lounge, where we spent some time, literally, in the clouds, I accidentally happened upon the best view of Chicago. Sometimes when you are not looking, life hands you a special gift. Take it.
Been to Chicago? I have two more days here and want to eat the best Italian Beef Sandwich, and best Chicago style dog. Suggestions?
