Spring Break! (part one)

by Son@Night

Faith and I just got back from a week’s vacation. We spent the first part of it in Chicago. Writing posts in prose is tough these days, but here are some pictures that tell the story.

"Faith, keep your eyes on the road!"

Our road trip vacation started with a drive across Wisconsin. "Faith! Keep your eyes on the road!"

The river turns green in Chicago on St. Patrick's Day.

We saw the river turned green in Chicago on St. Patrick's Day. We also saw inebriated people driving around the city. Not cool.

We were in a long line for the show, but got a picture with Kurt Elling.

We were in a long line for a concert, but got a picture with Grammy winning Jazz singer Kurt Elling when I recognized him arriving in a taxi.

We waited for about 90 minutes in the rain to get into the show at the Green Mill.  Incredible jazz and amazing fire hazard!

We went to eat at Gino's in Chicago.  Unfortunately Gino wasn't there.  :(

I don't know what you call this sport that we saw on Lake Michigan, but it was pretty amazing.

  1. i have a trip to chi (as well as MN) on the calender, just havent picked the dates.

    its turing out to be tough to go anywhere this yr.

  2. Aside from the fact that you’re probably the only Minnesotans in history to take a spring break to Chicago, I’m glad you had a good time. I admit I’ll have to google the jazz singer, I’ve never heard of him.
