Going To Cheecago, Baby..Sorry I Can't Take You...

... In my best Robert Plant (from "When The Levee Breaks")

Out the hotel door

From the Navy Pier

After walking all over the city, the Ferris Wheel on the Pier was treat

The incredible Merchandise Mart next door to the Holiday Inn. The studios for Q101.1 and The Loop (Emmis Chicago) are in this building. Very classy.

My obligatory "French Connection" shot
Chicago keeps adding to the skyline, while St. Louis hasn't
The band shell at "Millenium Park"
Saw these guys rehearse at noon on Wednesday
I love Chicago, everything about it. I just looked up the whole time I was there. I can't help it, the architecture is just incredible. Had a great meal at 35 place on Wacker and a so-so one at Mango, but the 4 mile walk through the city on Wednesday was incredible especially after a true Chicago hot dog at this place on Grand that was out of a Chicago movie. What a great three days. Sweet Home Chcago.

Sorry I haven't been keeping up as of late. I would love to have met you downtown for a hot dog or something while you were here, Randy. It's been TOO long!

I wish I'd known you were in Chicago. It would've been an honor to shake your hand. I was a big KY fan from SMSouth ('81 grad)
