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.
