We walked to the Contemporary art museum, which was okay. I wish we had gone to the Art institute instead, I'd rather see a Picasso then a minimilast sculpture that isn't really art (and that's the point, but still...). One gallery I did enjoy quite a lot is Ian Baxter&. He seemed like a pretty cool dude.
And we did some shopping. The thing about Chicago is I've been several times and have never really had a good time. As far as cities go Chicago is not my favorite. But I tried to get this trip planned out so it would go better. We drove in and first went to the wrong hotel, same name, wrong location. Once we got our car back and found the right hotel, they still can't find my reservation, so I bring it up on my iphone and show it to the lady checking us in (who was VERY friendly and not a B at all!) and she informed me that I reserved the rooms for January 29-31st, wrong month. Luckily, they had the same type of rooms available for both nights so it wasn't a huge deal. I just felt like an idiot that's all. And while we were shopping, Seth forgot to grab his camera bag. As soon as we realized it, about 15 minutes later, we ran back to the spot and the camera bag was there but no camera. Bummer, to say the least. I guess it's good that it was seth's camera that got stolen, and not mine which is more expensive. I'm not sure if/when we'll replace it. But it won't be for a while.
Anyway, here are some iphone pictures, since I didn't bring my camera out with me.
This was one of the Ian Baxter& exhibits, he painted over tv sets, and had static playing behind the paint, it looked pretty cool.
Rosebud, where we had Italian, and I had terrible tasting gf pasta (everything else was amazing tho...)
