|Walkway around Trump Building, Chicago|
A daily (or several times daily I should say) path was through here.
The Trump International Hotel walkway - by the river - was the best shortcut to get to the bridge and up to cross the street. At least from the front of our hotel.
We walked past this building and in and around so many times.
It became quite familiar.
The days were all excellent weather-wise. Which was good.
We walked virtually almost everywhere. And a good part of the full perimeter of the downtown area. Walking all the way around was long. But worth it. I got quite a few shots obviously, of the building.The view from our room included the very tall illuminated piece at night.
|Billy Goat Tavern, Chicago|
This was an interesting stop. We just had to go down, and go in.
And order - and eat a cheeseborger!
I am old enough to remember the first time John Belushi ever did his "cheeseborger, cheeseborger, cheeseborger' character. And believe it or not - he got his inspiration from the Billy Goat Tavern!
Even the man taking our order sounded just like him.
It was a fun thing to do, and worth going inside and sitting down. Just a small part of Saturday Night Live trivia I guess.
I believe there is a Billy Goat place on Navy Pier now too.
You also can see our hotel right behind the overpass. The Conrad.
We walked this way everyday too. Several times.
Hmmm.....we walked a lot.
(And I cannot wait to see what my good friend Goshiki comes up with when she goes on her trip. I am looking forward to her photos! And what she does with them!!)
