1. Don’t wear a porkpie hat if you want to go unnoticed. I saw the same guy at the top of the Sears Tower, in Millenium Park and at the airport. I never would have recognized him without the hat. It was not my husband, by the way.
2. Chicago dogs taste as good at 8 a.m. as they do any other time of day. That darn pickle wedge, however, must be removed and eaten separately at any time of day. It’s a choking hazard.
3. Suitcases on wheels are WAY better than sliced bread. But probably not if you really wanted a sandwich.
4. People love to get married at Chicago tourist attractions. In the few days we were there — not preoccupied with dodging potholes and swerving cars, that is — we saw six weddings at tourist attractions. I tried to figure out why taking photos of the bridal party in front of office buildings on Michigan Avenue was every little girls dream. Or if the landscaping in front of the Aquarium really looks better with sock-and-sandal clad tourists. And seriously? Asking your guests to come to a tourist destination on the busiest day of the year? Carrying gifts?? Wearing high heels?? That’s messed up.
I can’t wait to go back and learn more stuff!
I ♥ Chicago!
How ’bout you? Do you heart Chicago too? What’s your favorite thing there?
