A few weeks ago, our good friends Jen and Ryan took on the brave challenge of watching our kids for a whole 24 hours so Cindy and I could enjoy a night in Chicago. We've lived here almost 15 years and have never done a "night in the city," so this was a fun treat for us.
We stayed at the amazing Dana Hotel and Spa and totally dug the modern digs. We had a corner room with floor-to-ceiling windows which afforded sweet views of the city.
We had a nice meal at Roy's Restaurant where Cindy was daring enough to try some raw sushi (she liked it, but not as much as I did).
After dinner we had the most overpriced drinks combined with the most fantastic views from the top of the John Hancock Building.
The next morning we enjoyed a run in the snow along Lake Michigan before we had to head back home. What a great night out and huge thanks to our friends Jen and Ryan for making it possible!
