I had a beyond fabulous time in Chicago. The bf is from a Chicago suburb, so we got in a day early and stayed with his parents before taking the train downtown.
Of course we had to stop by Dunkin Donuts for coffee for the train.
We stayed at Hotel Palomar, and it was perfect. Its a boutique hotel, and they were even able to let us go up to our room at 10:30 in the morning when we first got there. I was tres impressed. ;) The pool was gorgeous and overlooked the city.
After checking in, we were off for our first meal--lunch at Quartino's. We have actually been to Quartino's before for a late-night pizza and drinks, but the lunch was even better.
We spent the afternoon walking around, enjoying the architecture, and of course, a little bit of shopping. ;)
These blush champagne flutes from Crate & Barrel may need to be ordered soon, and that couch is absolutely perfect.
We were surprised once we got back to the hotel with champagne for our anniversary!
We met up with my bestie and her bf, and after drinks and appetizers at Sable (and more than a couple songs to dance to in our room), we were off to Kingston Mines for live music.
The rest of the weekend included dinner at a fabulous BBQ restaurant, Chicago Q, much more shopping (including this fabulous new jacket), and of course, time with my bestie!
Do you have any fun trips planned? Any Chicago spots I'll have to add to my list for next time?
