My cousin Sam was passing through town the other day, and I was able to meet up with him (and his girlfriend) for the first time in a few years and catch up on old times. (What am I, fourty?) In any case, I gave him a brief walking tour of Chicago and then hit up Gino’s East for the best Chicago-style deep dish around. Then it was a quick cab ride back to Union Station so he could settle down for a 12-hour train ride.
Also went to Shedd Aquarium with S today to see the Wild Reef exhibit. The sharks weren’t as big as I was hoping, but it was still pretty cool.
