dd, chicago edition

I went to Chicago for the first time this weekend and I had such a good time! What a cool city...so much to do, it would definitely take more than one visit to see everything. Here's what we were able to fit in:

Friday Night
*Walked around Millennium Park and saw some architectural structures, if you will, including what my friend calls the "shiny bean."
*Art walk in the Chicago Art District
*Dinner at Nightwood
*Comedy show at Second City

*Breakfast at the Bongo Room (check out their menu - seriously amazing!)
*Quick stop at Trader Joe's to try their new Pear Cinnamon juice
*Saw the new Marilyn Monroe statue
*American Girl and LEGO stores
*Tour of the Chicago Tribune building
*Ferris wheel at Navy Pier
*Water taxi from the pier to the...
*Field Museum, including chocolate exhibit
*Walking through more parks downtown
*Deep dish pizza at Pequod's
*Jazz music at Green Mill

Some people have asked me what my favorite part was, but I honestly enjoyed everything! I would definitely recommend this city. Maybe someday I'll get to go back.
