I’ve been flying through O’Hare airport a number of times over the years but have not had the chance to visit the beautiful city of Chicago. On my most recent trip I’ve had the opportunity to spend a day around the city. Special thanks to 2 of my wonderful colleagues who took the day to show me around. First up, FOOD! And the food was definitely excellent at Fontera Grill. I’ve lived in Arizona so I’ve been to many Mexican restaurants and this was the first “up-scale” one that I’ve been to and I must say that it is one of the best places for Mexican food that I’ve had. Oh and they also make awesome Tequilas!

Then we headed up Willis Tower (formerly known as Sears Tower) and went on “The LEDGE”. It's a beautiful view of the city from up there and we were lucky as the weather was the best it had been all week.

and of course the gift shop


A little drive around the city and we stopped by for some cupcakes.
