Chicago

I was there for a long weekend - my first proper visit other than simply flying on to somewhere else via ORD.

It's surprisingly pleasant - for some reason I thought it was going to be a bit of a dive.

We stayed at the Suissotel (sp.?) on East Wacker Drive near the mouth of the river and I happily spent most of my time simply wandering around with The Grindstress. I thoroughly enjoyed an architectural boat ride tour (the guide was a nutter who made obscure eighties music puns and references throughout), a vertigo-inducing step out of the 103rd floor of The Sears (aka Willis these days) tower and walks along the "coastline" beaches and forays into Millenium Park to listen to the free classical stuff and look at weird sculptures.

I think Dream Theater were in town and I'm sure there was some baseball going on I could've gone to, but I got enough bollocking for taking footie time-outs all three days.

I'm embarrassed to say I went to an "Elephant and Castle" to eat one night (in my defence, I wanted some London Pride and bangers and mash), but Sunday night we went to a thoroughly decent seafood/steaky place whose name escapes me. Someone else even paid the bill. Renomnomsult.

I'm not sure what I was expecting, but Chicago does seem like a great place to live.

Wasn't overly taken with the Navy Pier tourist thing, but loved the trains rattling over the streets - I was just waiting for a car chase to develop.

I did have an NY strip (heaven knows what that cut is called in Blighty) as a pepper steak, but I've got into the habit of sticking steak on my barbecue at home and so have been a bit spoiled.

East Wacker Drive made me snigger a bit too much too.

Eddie informs me that it is now referred to as "pole dancing".

I knew I should've got the fish.
