I had a fabulous weekend away in Chicago. It was my first time visiting the city and I have nothing but positive reviews. I could not believe how many times a stranger would walk up to me and ask if I needed directions. So friendly. It made me reflect on how unfriendly Toronto can be in comparison to the midwestern hospitality I was shown.
My trip basically consisted of walking for eight hours a day, eating and taking photos of as much modern architecture as I could! Thankfully I had good, windy weather on my side last weekend which made the aforementioned activities a pleasure. My notable stops around the city included pizza at Quartino, Mexican at Zocalo, breakfast (aka amazing granola and a solid chocolate, almond ricotta coffee cake) at Milk and Honey cafe, drinking cupcakes (and a special tasting from Patty Rothman herself (*thanks Patty!!!) of the Valrhona chocolate, salted caramel (my favourite), red velvet and chocolate cupcakes) at More, a slice of apple rhubarb pie at Hoosier Mama Pie Company, brunch at Cafe Selmarie, a lite snack at Brasserie Jo, and a pillow (home decor) from Homey.
Here are some shots- architecture shots coming soon:
