Holiday USA – Day 3

Today was Chicago downtown day. Driving there from Naperville took about an hour.

Managed to find a nice parking spot and managed a very good bit of parallel parking. Even if say so myself.

Spent most of the time exploring the area (which I actually know very well) on foot. No big changes. A couple of disappointments when finding out that one of my favourite wine bar “CRU” no longer exists.

I love these towers with underground berths for the boats. I certainly could live in one of those.

Heading back to the “old town” early evening to park the car near the theatre where we are going to see a comedy show later.

A brisk 30′ walk through the old town to the excellent “Hugo Frog Bar Fish House” for aperitif

Next stop is back through the old town to the well know Second City theatre to see an excellent and very funny show.

Thank you to our friends J&T for organising all this.
