Chicago ~ Part 1

Brian and I went on a special trip to Chicago (just the two of us) a few weeks ago.  We had such an amazing time with one of my college roommates and her husband.  As you can imagine a good part of the trip was dedicated to food.
Now this is not your ordinary hot dog stop.  They have all sorts of gourmet sausages and toppings.  This was a chicken and spinach sausage with smoked mozzarella and a sun-dried tomato spread.

Chicago dog with spicy peppers and a spicy sausage.  It's called the Kiera Knightly, cause it's hot!
If you are a hot dog lover you have got to check this place out, even if you are not check it out.  Make sure you go early because there is always a  line out the door.  We got there around 10:30 and still waited, but it was most definitely worth it.

Colleen took this photo of us.
Next up the Chicago Cultural Center.  Admission is free.  This building is just stunning
This is Tiffany glass.  There are two gorgeous domes in the building.

Millennium Park

After that a nice cup of coffee sounded good.  So we stopped by Intelligentsia Coffee.  Well, I had chai, but everyone else had coffee.

Part 2 next week.
Have a great day!

Oh, I'm so jealous that you got to go to Chicago. My husband goes there sometimes on business but I've never been. Thank you so much for shring your photos. The stained glass window is just incredible.
