Labor Day - Chicago pt 3


All this site seeing made us hungry!

So we stopped at the
Park Grill.
This outdoor restaurant
is actually a skating rink!
In the summer they
convert it to an outdoor restaurant.



Here's Craig in front, with the "Bean"

up behind the building.

Very good food! Craig had shredded pork

tacos with pineapple salsa, and I had the soft shell duck tacos with mango salsa.YUMMY!

After we were fed and rested,

we headed down Michigan Ave.

to one of Craig's favorite stores,

Crate and Barrel!

//www.crateandbarrel.com/

It's probably six blocks or so from the park.

One thing I like about Chicago is all the landscaping they do.

In the middle of Michigan Ave.

they have these enormous planters

they fill with grasses, perennials,

and annuals!

They also do landscaping in

front of the stores.

Though it makes for more

crowded sidewalks!

But it also makes for a pleasant walk.

Here's Craig in the store.

See how happy he is?

They have tons of home stuff!

All that shopping made us thirsty, so we headed over to Navy Pier!

But that will have to be another post.

Time for work!
