We're back from Chicago!

Things we learned:
  1. Chicago weather is awesome.
  2. Midwesterners are very nice.
  3. Giordano's is better than Gino's East.
  4. Barney's closes at 7 on weekdays.
  5. People don't get to the clubs until 1AM (and not 11PM, much to our chagrin).
  6. There are lots of Russian people.
  7. 7-Eleven sells liquor.
  8. Sales tax is 10.25%.
  9. Cigarettes are almost $8.

Fiance (and newly established filmographer) made a music video of our trip.  Click and you'll also be able to see a cameo by a certain bearded man from WeWearThings.
