Well I am here in Chicago, I have been here before back in the 1992, but this time, I didn't have much spare time. I did get the opportunity to visit the Hard Rock Cafe, Miller's Pub, and Portillo's. I left DC on Sunday and it was in the high 60s and I was sweating at the airport. Woke up this morning to SNOW!! It was lake effect, but still, snow. I had to buy some gloves and an ear warmer. Brrr. I am from Florida for crying out loud. I am staying at the Palmer House, its an older hotel, very upscale, and they charge for everything. The stay here was overall, 3 out of 5 stars for me. I think there is points deducted for value, which there is none. Internet is $20 bucks a day, not free wi-fi, and the room, although spacious, lacks amenities like a coffee pot and fridge.

Tomorrow I head home, and My Sunshine and I are planning on doing our taxes, going to see WATCHMEN and Tuxedo shopping. We might even venture out to see the St Patrick's day parade.
