A day in Chicago

June 16, 2016

Chicago is one of my favorite cities, and I am happy I’ve got the chance to visit it one last time before we depart the United States. The main reason of this trip was my best friend’s wedding ceremony, held near Milwaukee, Wisconsin. However, we could not miss the opportunity and decided to visit downtown Chicago.  Since we did not have a lot of time, plus we were super tired from the flight, we decided to visit just Millennium Park and its famous Cloud Gate sculpture, otherwise known as the Chicago Bean. After snapping few pictures at the giant silver sculpture we walked around the park trying to hide behind the trees shade because of the torrid heat.

As you might or might not know, Chicago is famous for its deep dish pizza. This pizza style is served with a thicker crust and it’s baked in a pan with high edges, thus has a larger surface to spread generous amounts of cheese and tomato sauce. After our strolling through the park we stopped at Pizano’s on Madison to experience the taste of what looks more like a pie than a traditional pizza. When you order deep dish pizza be ready to wait about 30 to 40 minutes, and if you are starving it might be a good idea to get some appetizers to calm down your hunger while waiting. What you see in the pictures below are bruschetta and a small-sized deep-dish pizza, which was way enough for two hungry people.

After indulging our savorous meal, we discovered what real road traffic means. I feel I want to mention this because we were trapped among all those cars for about an hour and a half, but it felt like a lifetime considering  that we came from  Anchorage where you don’t stay in traffic more than 5 min, unless there is an accident.  Anyhow, we made it till the evening and enjoyed a great diner with good friends at the notorious Signature Room at 95th. The food was tasty and the city overview was astonishing; however, the waiting time was a bit long. #but hey, more time to chat, right? :)#

The dinner concluded our day adventure in Chicago and left us dear memories to archive.  What about you, what would you choose to do/visit if you were to visit in Chicago for one day?
