Chicago: Day Two

On Saturday morning, Ashley and I decided we wanted to eat breakfast at The Original Pancake House.

Little did I know that the restaurant was nearly two miles away, and we walked.

But, that's probably a good thing... because I was able to walk off the calories after eating this huge breakfast!

I was actually glad we walked because we took a stroll down Michigan Avenue and shopped for a while on the way back.

After shopping, we dropped our shopping bags off at our hotel and took a cab to Navy Pier. 

It was way too cold and windy for me to ride the Ferris Wheel--enclosed or not. We did some more walking around and enjoyed a gorgeous view of the Chicago skyline.

We also had lunch at Harry Caray's. After checking in on Foursquare, I got a tweet back from the restaurant! FUN!

After lunch, we took a cab out to Wrigley Field for the last few hours of daylight. It was something Ashley definitely wanted to do while we were there.

We also took a stroll down Clark Street. I was really excited when we turned the corner and I saw this (especially since the Clemson game was about to start!):

A Clemson flag in Chicago!

After that excitement, we hailed another cab back to the hotel. We took a quick shower and walked a block down the street to watch the game at Houlihan's and grab dinner.

(P.S. Clemson beat Duke 56-20.)

After the game ended, we went back to the hotel and called it a night because we were pooped. I'll be back tomorrow for a recap of our final (and busiest) day in Chicago.


  1. I've never been to Chicago, but am dying to go...especially since you said they have a gigantic mall.

  2. I seriously love Chicago and these posts make me want to go back!!! I love the navy pier! Your breakfast looks good!!
