Where I stayed
Michael & Charlotte's pad

This evening we are invited by Michael for a drink atop the John Hancock Centre. Our reasoning is that the admission to the observation deck is $ 16.00 on the 94th. floor, and a cocktail at "The Signature Room on the 95th Floor" is $ 13.00. So it's a good deal, as we get the view from one floor higher and a drink for less than the admission to the observation deck. It is by far the most panoramic gin tonic I have ever tippled.

Descending, I convince Michael we must eat famous Chicago Pizza. Last time in Chicago I remember the pizza was probably the best I had ever tasted. For the life of me I can't remember the name of the place, but as we pass by Giordano’s, I recognize it. Here again, there is a long queue to get it, and the maitre advises us that it will be at least an hour, plus a 30-minute wait for the pizza. As you know by now, I’m not one to wait in a line for my dinner, so Michael suggests an even better choice, Gino’s East, supposedly where Chicago Pizza originated. Just our luck, there is a queue at this place too. It’s hopeless! Even the Spanish tapas restaurant beside is packed. Turning a corner we espy a half-empty Armenian restaurant, the Sayat Nova East. Anything but queue, so in we go. It’s not bad at all, but I still need to enjoy my Chicago Pizza.
