While 45,000 people were running their way through Chicago, we ate our way through it. Caleb and I met my parents for a nice weekend getaway, with the intention to eat, eat, and eat some more. Don’t worry, walking was our mode of transportation, so we at least made room for the next meal.
While the food was fabulous, the company was even better. We’re already looking forward to Christmas in Portland to hang with these fine folks again.
First things first: coffee. After a nice long walk, we made it to the highly recommended Wormhole Coffee. The coffee was delicious and unique, just like their space.
Next up, a repeatedly-recommended favorite: Hot Doug’s.
Now, for the very reason we found ourselves in Chi-town: Alinea. 13 courses of bite size wonder. It was more than dinner. It was a performance. Art through the senses- visual presentation, scents, and of course, the taste buds.
The next morning we hit the town “early.” After lunch at Giordano’s for Chicago’s deep dish pizza, we perused the John Hancock Center, checking out the gorgeous skyline view from the 95th floor lounge.
We finished the night at Girl & Goat. The Butterscotch Budino was yummers yummerton.
Thanks for such an incredible weekend mommsie and pop. It was much anticipated, greatly treasured, and forever remembered.
