Sometimes I try to surprise Tiffany, but I am not very good at it. This trip however, I was doing great; until United messed things up by sending her an email letting her know to prepare for her upcoming flight. Damn.
All I had told Tiffany was that we had a long weekend planned and that it would be a bit cooler than Williamsburg. I had tried to play it up so that it sounded like we were heading up to the mountains around Charlottesville, one of our favorite destinations. But that was just a trick. We had mentioned many times that we both wanted to spend some time in Chicago. I had flown through the city so many times but never stopped to visit.
We didn’t have a huge amount of time in the Second City, but we got to visit the Field Museum and the Museum of Science and Industry. As expected we had a heavy food themed trip with the key event being dinner at L2O, an amazing gourmet seafood restaurant. The most exquisitely executed service I had ever experienced.
Want to know more? Tiffany does a great job documenting our trips in her blog entries below and we both took pictures.
