We rolled into Chicago on Monday afternoon stayed at our pal Adam's place in Wrigleyville. Yep, walking distance from the Cubs Wrigley Field, a nice and very walk-able neighborhood. I found "Candyality" a local candy store that carries a surprising selection of black licorice. I was able to pick up a nice assortment for my dad - the biggest fan of black licorice I've ever known.
I got to spend a day with my friend Gosia, and her friend Ola, at her vitamin store Herbovit. It was fun to catch up, learn about different supplements, and go out for a nice lunch. I appreciated the opportunity to spend a day with the girls.
A mural in action:
We went to Millennium Park which did not exist on my last visit to Chicago 20 years ago!
We attended a free concert in the park, along with the local Chicagoans on the lawn with blankets, chairs, picnics, wine, etc. on a beautiful summer night.
There are other interesting areas in the park, including a cool water area/feature with lights and video.
We had such a nice time catching up with friends and experiencing Chicago from a local's perspective. Thanks for the hospitality Adam.
