Sunday in the City

Flag at half staff on the Tribune Tower

I’m not sure if it was intentional or not, but yesterday the fam, Des, and I honored the events of 9/11 by admiring our own city – Chicago.

The Crew

We bought some Groupon deals for the Shoreline Architecture Cruise a few months ago for my dad’s birthday and gathering all of us for more than three hours is damn near impossible these days… BUT the stars lined up… not only was the weather perfect, but we got everyone together for a nice cruise, a little lunch at Harry Carry’s, and the first Bears game of the year. The frosting on the cake…. DA Bears win and Brian Urlacher reminds the crowd why they love him with a fabulous fumble recovery and a touchdown.

If you’ve never been on an architecture cruise through Chicago, I would highly recommend it. It’s like being a tourist in your own city. Here are some shots from the day…
