St. Patrick's Day in Chicago

Sunday was not only St. Patrick's day but it was also the last day of spring break. Neither my friends nor I got to travel anywhere warm so we decided a trip to Chicago would be a halfway decent substitute for not spending a week on the beach with drinks in our hands. 



After having thoroughly lost ourselves right after getting off the train, we stumbled upon Descarte's. A brilliant little coffee shop filled with delicious breakfast pastries and drawings of philosophers. 




After a good old fashioned caffeine fix we headed over to see the green river and were introduced to the House of Blues







Then it was time for a little shopping.



                        

What's better than Chicago in real life? A chocolate replica of Chicago. 








Our wandering led us to the Corner Bakery for lunch. . . 







And then to the Magnolia Bakery for dessert.




Next it was over to the Bean! 













Chicago, stay classy.
