  • Around Chicago February 2012

    Posted by Carl from Chicago on February 27th, 2012 (All posts by )

    Upper left – the hotel Dana. There is a cool Asian restaurant in the hotel – the billboard has a girl with 2 different colored eyes. On the roof of that hotel there is a club that is open all winter. Note – from behind – that building looks like a Soviet creation it is all faceless wall with one window. Upper middle – a cool new building on the Northwestern medical campus in Streeterville. Upper right – a little candle lit setup in the restaurant Zocalo in River North. Lower left – some random construction in River North. They are just adding a level on top of a building like it is a third world country or something. Lower middle – Chick Fil A is in Chicago near the Magnificent Mile – that place is awesome! Lower right – a cool red building in River North.

      These photo posts of yours almost make me want to visit Chicago. Almost.

      Jonathon – I think – like Manhattan – Chicago is great if you have the money! I can see myself staying on Lake Shore Drive!

    3. Dan from Madison Says:

      @Bill – you may want to qualify that by saying you would live there NOT in winter.

    4. Bill Brandt Says:

      @Dan – I remember some years ago my sister lived in Homewood – a nice suburb – and her then-husband worked for Arco – I visited them right after Christmas.

      Went downtown just to look around – I remember crossing a street that ran perpendicular to the Lake and that wind….

      THE WIND.

      It is hard to describe in words how it feels when a 30-40 mph wind hits you in zero degree weather.

      So yes, you are right – I should have have put that provision in!

      Chicago is known as The Windy City.

      If I could afford to live in a nice place on Lake Shore Drive I would have a nice place in FL too…
