Here are some more photos from the Thanksgiving vacation to Chicago and Indy, randomly chosen.
Right next to our hotel was a Gino’s East. Home of Chicago’s famous deep dish pizza. Seriously, it looks more like a pie than a pizza. They also allow (and encourage) writing on any piece of wall you can reach. Chairs too. Basically everything but the tables.
Another place we visited was Andersonville. Being a public transportation nerd, I really wanted to visit Transit Tees, which has both Chicago souvenirs for the L (transit system) as well as general souvenirs for the city and surrounding area. I ended up getting a card game and a puzzle. There was also a comic book store, at the end of an alleyway…
We also visited a store called “It’s Sugar!” at the Navy Pier. Oh. My. God. It lives up its name…
Closer to the Ferris wheel, you have an indoor rainforest of sorts. Nice and warm in the middle of winter, with lots of fun fountains spouting water every which way (including archways over paths).
They are NOT pizzas. Delicious quiches, pies or whatever. But NOT pizza 🙂 🙂
And Alleycat Comics was great. Friendly people, good choice including great trade paperbacks 🙂
