Where I stayed
We headed south on 6th Street and kept going until we could see the Lake to our east. Then we headed east and found a park along the shore where we could get a good picture of the Milwaukee skyline. I think it was South Beach Park because there was a beach. We followed Lake Street south and then Superior and before I knew it we were in St
After lunch we drove back to the lake and passed Peg's road again and this time Larry turned and we drove to the Apartment Complex and turned around in the steep driveway. Then we drove south again and pulled down a road and parked and walked back north along the shore. Today it was warm and sunny. We walked for about 45 minutes. We decided not to get on the freeway but took back roads all the way to Chicago
We got to our hotel about 5:30 and then took some time to sit still. It was after 6:00 when we decided to head out. First we went in search of the Unfinished Hofbrau House Chicago. After a couple of wrong turns we found it. It is under-roof and the sign is on it, but it is far from done. We will have to make another trip to Chicago when it is completed. Next we went to Gino's East Pizza for supper. Larry got Goose Island Green Line Pale Ale and Derek got The Anti-Hero IPA from Revolution Brewing of Chicago. We ordered a Deep Dish Supreme which took 40 minutes to fix. But it was way worth it. The crust was incredible, the cheese was put on next, and then the sauce etc. We had to eat most of it with a knife and fork. There were roasted tomatoes in the sauce and every ingredient was very fresh. The only negative was that our waiter was very slow getting drinks and the bill.
When we got back to the hotel we checked email and skyped with Erin who had been to the Rock Bottom Brewery in Bellevue last night to watch the Huskies football game. They beat Stanford. She said she is going to a Sports Bar tomorrow to watch the OSU game. We planned our itinerary for tomorrow and went to bed.
