Chicago & Millennium Park by Ann Treacy

We’re in Chicago. Woo hoo! So on Tuesday we headed out to Millennium Park, one of our favorite places in Chicago. We started with a tour of the Taste of Chicago. We had ribs, cookies, popcorn, hotdogs, homemade potato chips, dumplings, tacos and more. We saw a hotdog eating contest at the Man Vs Food booth. We watched some Cajun cooking at the chef’s table. It was fun.

Then we went over the BP Bridge to the Park. We saw an orchestra – well, to be fair, we heard an orchestra, we didn’t really see them. Then we went to the bean and finally the water portion. The kids were a little miffed that they weren’t wearing their swim suits but they got over it and didn’t get too wet.

Eventually, despite the pig-out earlier in the day, we got hungry and walked up to Greek Town. We had a very fun dinner, including flaming cheese – two rounds of it! The restaurants in Greek Town are maybe the best places to bring a family in the world. It started with free kiddie cocktails, moving onto lots of flaming food, more bread than anyone should be allowed and ending with the super quick service.
