.....in that case, I suggest: 1) eating lunch or dinner at the Berghoff, then 2) picking up an architectural guide and enjoy the cradle of American architecture. Walk off the calories by enjoying a trove of projects design by Frank Lloyd Wright, Louis Sullivan, Daniel Burnham, SOM, Mies Van der Rohe, Helmut Jahn and Rem Koolhaas to name a few, 3) visit a suburb like Evanston and rent a bike to soak up the feel of Midwest suburban life. A) Definitely plus a million to the architecture. Chicago has such nice buildings, such a beautiful downtown area. B) Don't mention it's in the Midwest. Conne will immediately hate everything he sees here.
