A big bean, some serious food, the grand art, a great lake. Cool buildings, friendly people, Second City humor, it’s a lot to take. Don’t you just love Chicago? Don’t you just love a FREE Fairmont?
We came to Chicago in early summer, and it was already very hot! I wondered what it’s like there in the winter time. This silvery, snowy picture inspires me- if I visit again, that’s when I’ll go.
And speaking of inspiration, our best meal there was at Sixteen, sad to say (because it is owned by one of the worst human beings on the planet)… anyway, their multicourse lunches are unbeatable for a two Michelin-starred restaurant.
A delicious course for fans of a Paleo diet, at Sixteen, lunch
One of us had a conference, and a jam-packed one at that, so we decided to add on a few extra days to enjoy the city from a traveler’s point of view. Spending a couple of hours in The Art Institute alone made that a worthwhile decision. And Fairmont hotels helped us achieve our goal in a generous way, but unfortunately, they have recently cancelled their fantastic credit card promo offer.
Is Chicago your kind of town?
