Day 290 – Second Full Day in Chicago

October 17, 2009

I had another great day today! We got a late start (slept until 11), but Ryan and I met Carrie at Jake Melnick’s for lunch, which was excellent. I had a beef brisket sandwich, and we got an order of the XXX wings. Those wings are the hottest, yet most flavorful wings I’ve ever had. They blow Quaker Steak’s atomic sauce out of the water. They were very good, but insanely hot. Even now, 7 hours later, I can still feel the dull burn in my stomach from those wings.

After lunch, we walked down Michigan Ave down to Millennium Park, then took the river architecture tour. I have some really cool photos from today, which I will upload over the course of next week.

Right now, we are on our way to dinner, then a house party down to street to hear some live music.

Tomorrow night, I will be back at Hillsdale.

EDIT: We decided to go see Where The Wild Things Are and then eat Chinese food at midnight, rather than go to the house party.
