Frank Lloyd Wright and much night funApril 16, 2018 in the United States ⋅ ☁️ 0 °C
We took it easy again this morning and it had snowed quite a bit overnight. We went to Walmart which was not that exciting but we did buy a few necessary things 😉. Then we set off with Marcie and drove to Oak Park. This suburb is full of amazing homes including several Frank Lloyd Wright homes. We did a tour of the Oak Park home which was fascinating - based on nature, space and very Japanese styles. The tour guide was great and we purchased a lovely brooch to remember it. We then drove round to also see the Unity Church. On the way home, we stopped at Rand Red Hots to get another American delicacy hot dogs and a tamale!!
After a nice rest at home, we went downtown again for another great night's entertainment. We went to 'Howl at the Moon' where live music included two singers/pianists singing requests that we gave tips for. The first two were excellent and very talented and we sang, drank and enjoyed Bruce etc. The next two were just not as good. After that, we continued our Kane Chicago Foodie Tour and went to Al's Italian Beef which was a continuation of junk food heaven. Then we were looking for a toilet and were sent to brand new Found Hotel - like an upmarket hostel. Finally, they drove us to Wrigley Field - the famous baseball field. We had tickets but they had cancelled because of the cold but it was great to see nevertheless. Another great day!Read more
