Weekend in the tundra...
Cyn and I spent last weekend on a getaway-research trip up to the Windy City.
Talk about the off-seaason: It was around 5 F the whole time during the day, and got down to -9 at night. This wouldn't have been completely terrible, except that wind chills were about minus 25.
Sunday in Austin? 70.
We checked out a bunch of places that are going into Cyn's wip: Field Museum, Navy Pier, the Hancock Building and the Bloomingdale's Building, and a bit on north Michigan Avenue. We also went to see the Chicago Historical Society's new Crossroads of America exhibit. Food highlight of the trip was the Parthenon, in Greek Town. I have no idea of what half the things we ate were, but they were all excellent. And relatively cheap.
