Adventures in Chicagoland, Part 2

Since I was in sessions until 5pm my wanderings were mostly at night. While I was at the conference, Mark took in the Art Institute of Chicago on the first day and the Shedd Aquarium on the second. Here are some shots of our walkabout during the evenings.

Hard to get any more iconic than the Chicago Theatre (c. 1921)
Oriental Theatre (c. 1926)
View of the The Wrigley Building (c. 1924) from one of the bridges
Inside Pizano's, where we went for beer and classic deep dish pizza
Pizano's opened in 1991, inspired by the owner's father's place, opened in 1943
Chicago Water Tower (c. 1869)
The Pumping Station (c. 1866), now home to Lookingglass Theater Company
The grand entrance atrium of the Crate & Barrel on "The Magnificent Mile"
The largest Burberry store I have ever seen!
Looking up at the ceiling of Grand Lux Cafe
Intercontinental Chicago (c. 1929) and Tribune Tower (c. 1925)
Better view of the neo-Gothic Tribune Tower (c. 1925)
Stunning entrance to the Tribune Tower (c. 1925)
Detail of entrance to Wrigley Building (c. 1924)
The skyline from the Michigan Avenue Bridge (c. 1920)
Another great view of the Tribune Tower and Intercontinental Chicago.
The Art Institute of Chicago (c. 1893)
