Sharon and I going to make a quick weekend trip (celebrities, you have been given fair warning!) and are looking for things we should NOT MISS.
It’s been almost TWENTY YEARS (I can’t believe it) since I visited the city of Chicago and 13 years since Sharon did. We have a whole day on Saturday to sightsee and really have no idea what to do. Ed Debevics, Sharon’s favorite Chicago food spot, is closed. The one thing I wanted to do isn’t happening because the Chicago Cubs don’t plan their home game schedule around my trips. How dare they! 😉
The one thing that we are going to do (or at least try to do) during our trip is TILT Chicago. This is normally something I’d say, “Nope, nuh-huh, no way” to doing but I’m trying to face some of my fears and this seems to be one I can accomplish. Besides, Sharon (edit by Sharon: “Sharon The Risk Taker Who Is Not Afraid of Heights,” thank-you very much) is totally all about doing this ever since I showed her a video on Facebook (a move that I’ve regretted ever since):

We’re also looking for places to eat. Sharon wants to try some Chicago style pizza but what else is the city known for? Is it worth going to Portillo’s for a hot dog?
I found a website that shows the 106 Cool and Unusual things to do in Chicago but we only have one day. Right now the International Museum of Surgical Science is towards the top of our list (and I’m sure those of you who know us well will not be the least bit surprised by this).
Like this post? We have plenty more just like it and would love if you decided to hang around and clicked the button on the top of this page to follow our blog and get emailed notifications of when we post (it’s usually just once or twice a day). Whether you’ve read our posts before or this is the first time you’re stopping by, we’re really glad you’re here and hope you come back to visit again!
