My kind of town, Chicago is.

Frank Sinatra

New York may currently have my heart, but Chicago is making a play for it. I had an amazing invitation to visit a dear friend and his partner, to hang out and to see Idina Menzel on her 2015 world tour. How could I turn down an opportunity to visit a city I had only visited in my youth and naiveté.

This time around I was older, wiser, and able to enjoy a good cocktail! Thanks in part to the generosity and hospitality of my friends, I had a spectacular time. Here are some of the highlights.

  • I was not prepared for the architectural details foiund every, even in something as simple as a fence.
  • I found Chicago’s architecture more compelling and unique than NYC (gasp!). I mayve to visit both a few more times to be sure. 😉
  • I love water and I love boats. The Chicago Water Taxi did not disappoint.
  • This is one of my favorites from the trip, even if Dumptrump’s name is visible. Maybe I should photoshop it out…🤔
  • While not the best of the concert shots I took, Idina’s cover of Radiohead’s “Creep” was touching, and IMHO, the highlight of the show.
  • I love the pure joy of children playing in the water on hot summer days.
  • Street art in Little Siagon.
  • I made to the lake as well. It never ceases to amaze me that this is a lake.
  • Ah, The Green Mill.

To see pics from the entire trip (warts and all!), check out my Flickr album 2015 August Chicago.
