We had the opportunity to spend a lovely weekend in Chicago, thanks to our most generous of employers. It was great fun to take a vacation so close to home. 

We stayed in the posh and historic Blackstone Hotel. We also enjoyed an incredible meal from Iron Chef Jose Garces’ Mercat a la Planxa right off of the lobby.

We had delightful weather for January, clear and 34°.  For entertainment we ate, ate, cheered, ate, viewed, and sipped a bit o’tea. The only thing wrong with the weekend was that it ended too quickly.  We also hit the Art Institute, but that’s another story…
