Walkin' in the Windy City.

Can you believe a 6 mile walk to find an Irish Restaurant? Our cab driver couldn't but it was true. Details coming up...

After breakfast at a place in Libertyville, IL, we hopped aboard the Metra Train for a ride to Chicago's Union Station. After an hour we had arrived and began our trek for the important stuff in life. You know, Coffee.

Visited a McDonald's for an Iced Coffee and a Starbucks, then decided to take the trip to the Skydeck on the 103rd floor of the Sears Tower. Kathy will have pictures once we get home which I'll post.

We decided to head to O'Brien's for an early dinner. So we found Wells Street and started the walk. About 1/2 way there, as we were questioning our sanity, we stopped for a beer before finishing our journey. We decided to take a cab back after a delicious dinner, that didn't even feature any Irish fare!

The cabbie we hailed for our trip back to Union Station thought we were nuts, and that's when we discovered we walked not a couple miles, but over 4 (plus a couple more earlier in the day)!

Saturday we head to Indy!
