Spicyland in Chicago – Day 2Posted: August 14, 2012
Day 2 in the Windy City started out with a walk through Millennium Park, mere blocks from our hotel.
We had heard chances of rain throughout the day, so we lugged our raincoats along….as it turns out, no rain. It was mostly sunny and a bit gusty….not too shabby for strolling around!
A little after noon we met up with my dad and he walked us over to the Harris Theater, Glamorama’s home for the week.
After the rehearsal, the three of us hiked up to the Gold Coast neighborhood. We were determined to retrace our steps to the restaurant where we had wine and cheese the first night of our Chicago-Glam trip four years ago.
It was one of those….”remember there was a patio here, it was on that side of the street, I swear it was on this corner?” recollections. Foggy at best.
Dad knew just where to go – Tavern on Rush. We had a delicious late lunch that I didn’t photograph any of because I was too busy eating and our table was about the size of a stool.
After lunch, Dad had to head back to the theater, Mom and I cruised Michigan Avenue to do some shoppin’.
We didn’t go to the actual show Friday night, but we did go to the Glam after-party….on a rooftop, under a tent, next to the theater. It was bumpin’, it was loud, it was bright, it was people watching, it was eats and drinks….it was a blast!
Such a fabulous day – and night! And it’s going so fast – day 3 tomorrow!
