Chicago Rocks / Thursday-Friday edition

I had an absolute blast in Chicago this past weekend! I went with my office for the Chicago Midwinter Meeting. I won't bore you with crazy details...or maybe I will. We arrived Thursday night on the Amtrack train and were greeted by the longest Hummer limo I've ever seen. We packed 16 of us inside with our luggage. Took it easy Thursday night and Friday morning went to a CE class. Friday afternoon I ventured into the city with a couple friends. We ate at Russian Tea Time, very good and the waiter was delicious (yes I said waiter). After lunch we went to The Art Institute of Chicago, it was fabulous.

With a quick stop in Millennium Park to see the giant bean we were then off to the top of the John Hancock Center for some afternoon cocktails.

This is a view of the Sears Tower from the John Hancock.

Me in my Ritz Carlton robe & slippers! The hotel was amazing. And there were a few celebrity sightings...more of that later.

Friday night we hung out at The House of Blues for a little music and conversation. Saturday edition up next...
