I normally don’t do full-on restaurant reviews because SO MANY people already do them and probably write better reviews than me (Yelp is wonderful). But I felt compelled to at least capture the ambiance of this one Greek bakery/cafe/agora we brunched at in Chicago because a) its decorations and pastries were so unbelievably pretty, and b) there weren’t many people in the restaurant at the time so I didn’t feel self-conscious taking photos. Now there’s the real reason… 😀
The restaurant was called Artopolis.
Unfortunately, my camera battery ran out of juice right after we left Shedd Aquarium, so I could only take photos with my little iPhone for the rest of the night. Well…here’s a little taste of what Chicago’s infamous Navy Pier was like:
Right after my friends and I left Millennium Park, we walked along the marina to Shedd Aquarium. The city sure looked great at dusk. All those lights in the distance? That’s Navy Pier, which was our next and final destination for the day.
Everyone knows that when you visit Chicago, you must go see the Bean. So being the good tourists that we were, my buddies and I zoomed around Millennium Park and posed with cool sculptures, admired the beautiful scenery, and you know it – selfied the hell out of that Bean.
Coming from the south side, we first passed through Grant Park.
