The Windy City

Andy and I took a little mini vacation to Chicago this past weekend to go to a Matt Nathanson concert at the House of Blues, and to just play tourist in the big city. Unfortunately, our tendency to explore a city on foot was hindered greatly by the colder than normal temperatures that made everything bitterly cold.

Regardless, we still had a great time, and lucked out on Priceline by landing a reservation at The Palmer House. The location made trips to the nearby attractions and hot spots bearable while the sun was up, including Millenium Park (shown above) with the Cloud Gate sculpture that reflects the surrounding skyline.
