Weekend Wrap Up: Chicago

On Friday we zipped trekked up to Chicago to visit our friends Bobby and Laura.
I'm not sure if you heard but Chitown got about 6" of snow on Friday.
So what should have been a 5 hour trip turned into an 8 hour trek in the snow.
But, alas, we made it there safely and had a fabulous weekend!

Friday night we headed to Dunlay's for dinner and drinks at Longman and Eagle.
We really loved Longman and Eagle- a very unique and yummy little spot!

Saturday morning we headed to Wrigleyville and had a delicious meal at DMK Burgers.
We were so busy eating burgers and (3!) different types of fries that we forgot to take any pictures. 
But trust me, they were amazing!!
After lunch we took the train down to Millennium Park, checked out The Bean and hit the ice to go ice skating.

 I am happy to report that no one fell while we were ice skating!
I enjoyed it so much I am dying to go again here in Cincy.

Sunday morning we were able to meet up with some friends of ours that we had met on our honeymoon- it was so great to see them again!

I'll be back later this week with some other fun pictures from our weekend.

Wow sounds like the perfect winter weekend! I've always wanted to see that bean, and in the snow no less! Can't wait for more pictures :-)

Oh no, you drove up here in the storm! My commute in the Chicago area normally takes an hour, Friday it took 3 hours (which is typical anytime we get hit w/ a big storm) Alas, why I hate winters! Glad you still had a good weekend.

How fun!!! We love Chicago! That sounds awful about the extra long drive. But your weekend sounded amazing!
