On the second day, we met up with friends at The Bong Room for brunch. The Bongo Room doesn’t take reservation. We got there a hair too late and had to wait almost an hour for a table. Glad it was well worth it!
第二天早上和大學同學去The Bongo Room吃早午餐，Bongo Room不接受訂位，我們只比開門時間晚了一點點到，餐廳已經客滿，得要等一個小時，還好非常值得！
When I travel, one of my most favorite things to see is public art, especially installations that interact with people. Chicago is a great place for this.
After I shot at dawn and sunrise once, there is no going back. The lighting in midday is just too plain. So, during this recent trip to Chicago, I made my sister wake up early with me to go to the Millennium Park for the sunrise.
This beautiful staircase caught my attention when I was searching for places to go in Chicago.
It is impossible to not notice the publicity of this “encased sausage emporium” when you research must-eat’s in Chicago. Anthony Bourdain loved the foie gras sausage and duck fat fries in his show, No Reservations. Hot Doug’s is in his list of 13 places to eat before you die.
If you are just as curious as I was about whether water lilies at the Phipps Conservatory aquatic garden are blooming or not, here’s your answer.
The sunrise last Saturday was not all that glamorous. Yet it was the last day that I was able to get up early and easily make it to Mount Washington by myself before I end the lease of my Shadyside apartment and completely move out of the city. That milestone status makes this morning trip blog-worthy.
