Chi-town

Well we felt like royalty this weekend in Chicago...and it was all by random chance! We had been planning a weekend get away to Chicago for a couple of weeks just because we live so close, why not? So we decided to stay at the Hyatt Regency...just so happens that my sweet aunt Kim knew the manager and told him we were coming! When we got there, they announced we were their VIP guests (to this we were shocked and had no clue what to do!) They upgraded us to a room a lot fancier than what we had paid for! No complaining here...





We were just as shocked when the concierge brought us wine and cheese with a note from the manager. After this...he realized we looked young and asked for our IDs...Obviously Tyler's 3 day grown beard didn't work!
 
Our view

superr excited
We decide to go down to Wrigley field and eat at a place we saw on Diners, Drive-ins, and Dives on the food network. We were so glad we listened!!!

DMK Burger Bar

Just can't go wrong with burgers, sweet potato fries, fried pickles, AND fried okra.


We loved this area around where the Cubs play..cute little restaurants and shops and houses I would LOVE to live in. Couldn't be more than a couple million dollars?

Tyler was craving some football as well because Michigan State was playing (who he has loved since he was little thanks to Timmy!). Apparantly in Chicago, they have a bar for every college football team. The Michigan State bar was right beside the burger place! We caught the end of the game there.

Sadly, they lost in two overtimes.

But we didn't let that get us down! We explored Chicago and walked just about everywhere. Unfortunately the weather was not perfect, but we didn't mind too much.
We also decided while here...we want to live here. Just for a year.

On Saturday night, we met Maren and Steve and some of their friends! Steve is a manly man and ran the Urban Athalon that morning in Chi-town. Came in first (in my heart) go Steve!!

In our sweeet hotel
 And you can't come to Chicago and NOT get pizza. Of course...
Unfortunately I only took pics on the iphone...you cannot see the waterfall of delicious cheese


The celebrity stalker I am...I heard Pete Wentz and Perez Hilton opened a club near our hotel. I rallied the troops to go..but it was so small we couldn't even walk in!

Most importantly, the Vols were on. We found a little place where we begged the workers to put our game on and we saw just enough! Sad night, we'll get 'em against Bama! :)

We had to sleep off our loss..the next morning we got up early and walked down Magnificent mile to a cute little breakfast place. 

Top of the mornin to ya!
 So anyways...we love Chicago. I think we have been once a month for each month we have lived in Milwaukee (3). Maybe we will live here one day..or maybe we will just visit as much as can!!
