The Purple Pig

4.5

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.

    Fans of historic architecture won't want to miss a walk down the Magnificent Mile, a prominent section of Michigan Avenue. In addition to the rows of upscale shops at ground level, don't forget to look up at some of the most famous buildings in the city - the Trump Tower, the John Hancock Center, the Wrigley Building, the Tribune Tower ...

    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.

    A good #2 for men in Chicago. The men's section is a bit conservative but is a great place to pick up basics -- and, occasionally, that special jacket, sweater or pair of shoes.

    The river is a great way to explore the city. The best way to see it is with an architectural boat tour -- one of the highlights of a visit to Chicago. The river takes center stage during St. Patrick's Day when it "turns" green in honor of the Irish community.

    Architecture River Cruise

    A spectacular way to learn about Chicago architecture (when the weather is good). All of the architectural tours are fantastic but spending time on the water gives you a bit of distance and a chance to really observe. One of my favorite Chicago tourist experiences.

    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". ;)

    As much a Nike museum as a retail destination. If you love Nike or basketball, an interesting place to stop.

    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.

    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 ...

    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
