Architecture in Chicago

After arriving in the Windy City via Amtrak, we went on a walk through the city filled with skyscrapers. Sorry, I don’t know all the names of the buildings. But they offer great views of the city above the Chicago River or bustling streets.

After enjoying downtown, the Riverwalk and all the rest, we headed to The Second City. The highest rated comedy show in Chicago and a training center for actors, comedians, writers and artists.

 

At The Second City, we had a blast. Probably the funniest night of my life, I was constantly cracking up at the show The Winners of Our Discontent. I had a great time there, and I highly recommend going. Very, very, very funny.

The Winners… Of Our Discontent

After a great show, we headed to The Purple Pig. I am not a food photographer, and having 10:00 pm lighting didn’t help. But the Tapas restaurant was delicious. I recommend the Beets under Vegetables.

After dinner we walked to our hotel, the Freehand Chicago. More a hostel than a hotel, it is a young, happy building with its own bar, cafe and restaurant.
