Chicago Trip Part 5 (Lincoln Park Zoo/Art Institute of Chicago/ EATING!!! ^0^)

18 Aug

Evening Meebsies,

The final Chicago post. ^_^

Went to the Lincoln Park Zoo. The great thing about this place is it doesn’t cost a dime to go. The whole zoo is free to the public every day of the week. ^^

One of the greatest fountains EVAH!! ^^

Second fav animal. Pandas would have to be the first. ^_^

Breathtaking…

Got to pet the ponies. ^^

Had ice cream on our way back.

Bomb Diggidy Milkshakes. >_<

Greek for lunch. Highly recommend Kosta’s for gyros.

You MUST go the Art Institute of Chicago. This is a huge composition notebook. Height wise it was two of me. Pretty neat.

Lichtenstein Converse.

Original American Gothic By Grant Wood

The Picture of Dorian Grey By Ivan Albright. One of my favorites. Even though it is a little eerie. The detail is amazing.

A Sunday on La Grande Jatte By George Seurat

Paris Street; Rainy Day By Gustave Caillebotte

If you are familiar with pizza in Chicago; you know about Uno’s. This place has been in almost ever travel and food show I have every seen. I had to go. However, prepare to wait at least an hour before you get a seat. But sooo worth it.

Deep dish pzizza all the way boy. ^^

Next day we decided to try out Brothers Ribs for, well, ribs.

AMAZING SIDES…

Horrible ribs… Ironic right?

This place was AMAZING. I know that I use that word a lot, but this place really was amazing. It’s extremely affordable and the portions are HUGE.

First time I’ve every had crepes. Certainly won’t be the last.

If you get a chance, grab a ridiculously yummy milkshake from Ghirardelli.

Loved this Marina City building. It’s actually suppose to look like corn on a cob. Lol. There are apartments in this complex and all the rooms are pie shaped. Lol. Must be hard to decorate. >_<

If you love chocolate. Go to Fannie May for BOMB chocolates.

I know that a lot of people have a fear of flying. I on the other hand love flying. I find it serene. I always wonder if this is what heaven looks like…

Overall, I have to say that Chicago has stolen my heart. From the Chicago proud natives, to the twinkling skyscrapers at night.  There is  always something to love here. ^_^

Next post will be about my travels to Wisconsin. ^_^

Have a great rest of the day.

Love Always,

Meebs
