Our Chicago Adventure

On to another adventure. This time no kids, well at least no kids under the age of 33.

What better place to explore; Chicago.

I’ll tell you what, it really is nice having a built in tour guide that knows so much about the city. I think I can speak on behalf of my other brothers when I say thank you for always showing us a good time and not losing any of us, especially my friend and me.

In honor of our Feld January birthdays, the four of us set forth on a cold night downtown of the windy streets of Chicago.

We ate amazing food. We drank amazing drinks, at least I did, my brothers seem to enjoy what seems like gasoline mixed with lacquer thinner in a fancy gold cup. But whatever floats their boat.

A few things I learned that night.

  1. When someone who lives in the city says a bar is only 4 blocks away walking, he really means about two miles.
  2. My brothers don’t do well in the cold. The 20° weather seemed pretty warm to the Minnesota -20° I’m used to. They would never survive where I live.
  3. The older I get, the more I appreciate the time spent with my brothers. Who’d of thought that a mere 15 years ago we would have been fighting over who was eating who’s ice cream, and now look at us.

All in all the night was a success. The next morning was followed by dragging Eric around taking pictures of particular landmarks and such. Even though our fingertips turned white, our noses were red and our toes lost all feeling, I think it will be safe to assume we’ll have another adventure together soon, but maybe wait till it’s 50° warmer.

So thank you Nick for another adventure in the city. You never cease to amaze me with what you know. Perhaps a Chicago tour guide is your next calling.

Here are just a handful of pictures. Enjoy!
