The Purple Pig

500 N Michigan Ave, Chicago, IL
4.5
21 reviews

In a city full of tapas and small plates restaurants, this one stands out, and is even favored by a number of celebrity chefs themselves. Adventurous eaters should try the pig ears, bone marrow, and foie gras with membrillo.

    New York has 5th Avenue. LA has Rodeo Drive. Chicago has the Mag Mile. Those with money to spend will have plenty of choices, with shops like Burberry, Armani and Tiffany's lining the street. Start at the Old Water Tower building then work your way south towards the river. Once you've shopped your heart out, you can take a well ...

    Home of the skyscraper, taking the time to appreciate the city's architecture is a major thing to do when you're in town. There are a lot of boat tours to choose from, but your money is best spent on the slightly more expensive tour run by the Chicago Architecture Foundation. With experienced, knowledgable staff, you'll walk away tons of fun ...

    I love all the bridges in Chicago because they merge beauty, photo opps and function all in one. If you see people trying to take a picture and you're not in a hurry- offer to take it. It's what a local would do.

    I have gone in here a few times because I have friends who have one a party with the half-off happy hour. You can't really go wrong with that. I don't live in the area so I do wonder if I would go if it weren't for the half-off would I be tempted to go. The drinks are a little ...

    The walking area along the Chicago River was well thought out. There are two levels of the Riverwalk filled with benches, small park areas and restaurants. Take a snapshot here from almost any angle and have it look distinctively Chicago.

    Exactly what a jazz club should be....cozy, good drinks....great place talk and listen to great music. My husband and I walked passed a packed club (could hear the bass like two blocks away) and we both looked at each other and said "I'm so glad we didn't go there". ;)

    Overall nice store, lots of stuff with all the varieties of Nike shoes. They even have treadmills so you can take the shoes for a spin. It is really busy so the sales representatives get busy and distracted but they are friendly.

    Wendalla runs several sorts of boat tours on Lake Michigan and the Chicago River. I like the architecture tours that take you up the river to highlight the buildings on the river banks. Take a sunset tour so you end up on the lake at twilight to see the cityscape lit up.

    This should be the first, and will be the best thing you do in Chicago. Amazingly knowledgable guides from Chicago's architecture foundation give you a history of the Chicago skyline, and you'll enjoy their stories sipping on some excellent bloody marys.

    I'm staunchly indifferent about this place. Yet it always ends up being a small part of the Hubbard Street hop.

    Almost every Saturday and Wednesday in June. This free event is spectacular in how they time the music to the explosions. You can also watch the show along the lake path all the way to Adler Planetarium, but you'll miss the music. Schedule --> http://www.navypier.com/things2do/fireworks.html

    Next to the Chicago Tribune building and home of the new Marilyn Monroe statue, Pioneer Plaza is a new must-see attraction. People are flocking to Marilyn, photographing themselves between her legs both looking up or looking out. (Note, she is wearing panties.) I have more Chicago pix posted on my website: www.terrytravels.com

    The chocolates here are so good!!! As one of the chocolate vendors part of the Chicago Chocolate Tour, Fannie May gave us the chocolate pixie (turtle) and two FM Artisan fine chocolates to sample: the dark chocolate and apple pie. So delicious, especially the apple pie. Coated with a red sugar coating, once you bite into it, it really tastes ...
