The Windy City...

Brittany and I just spent the past few days in Chicago with Jordan and Tim. It was incredibly cold, but a lot of fun. We got to visit with Jessie and her boyfriend, Jorge. The Museum of Science and Industry was awesome, as was the Shedd Aquarium. We didn't even talk about going to the top of the Willis Tower (formerly Sears Tower), so I wasn't laughed at and tortured by my wife and family. We did, however, eat at a lot of great places, including Frida's, a restaurant owned by Jorge's aunts (again, off the charts good--best guacamole I've ever eaten). We stayed at a boutique place called Hotel Felix (thanks to Priceline). It was what a hotel should be: clean and modern with good amenities and a helpful staff.

I think Brittany and I have decided to forego a big vacation this year. We are still gonna do some weekend trips like this weekend in Chicago. Brit always talks about going to England and Ireland, and I'm sure I'd love to go and complain about food. So we're shooting for the UK in 2011.
