More From Chicago

Here are just a few more photos from our trip to Chicago last weekend. We stayed at the The Hotel Allegro ( in the theater district. We've stayed there before but they've done a wonderful remodel in an Art Deco/Funky Eclectic style since I was there last. The hotel has great service, is centrally located in the Loop, and has a free nightly wine hour for guests. The only small complaint I have is that the rooms are somewhat small but who wants to spend their vacation in the hotel room, anyway?
The photo above and below are shots of the lobby. I would love to take the pink velvet couch home with me :)

While we were in Chicago, we met a friend for breakfast at Orange on N. Clark (easy to get to from the Loop, just take the red line to Belmont and it's a short walk from there)
Below is a picture of the delicious and beautiful Frushi. Everything was good and the prices were very reasonable. If you want to beat the crowd on weekends, get there before ten.

This last photo below is of the restored Tiffany dome at the Chicago Cultural Center. The center has lots and lots of neat architectural details, art exhibits, and one of the Chicago's Visitor's Centers is located on the first floor. The gift shop looks like it is stocked with some cool and unique souvenirs, but was closed on Sunday when we stopped by (bummer).
