After a quick ride over to the Hyatt Regency O’Hare, checking in and dumping my trash, it was time to grab a Uber to go down-town and to the John Hancock Building to meet RenePoints and friends.
I seem to be in Chicago at the same time the Chicago Seminars are running – except I go to a different event. And no, I won’t be talking about it on this blog… most of my readers fragile minds might shatter.
So a ride in a Uber – and 30 minutes later, I was nearing my destination;
And soon enough – I was at the foot of the John Hancock building.
Whilst some prefer the Sears Tower – I’ve personally preferred the John Hancock. Whilst its design isn’t as “iconic” as the Sears Tower, its location on Lake Shore and its panoramic views on to the lake are hard to beat.
Hold it a cotton shaking second… is that The Crystalline Entity from Star Trek: The Next Generation???
I headed up to the 95th floor to meet RenePoints and friends, as we dined up high
From the window seat.
Don’t look down… oh.
The design of the restaurant allows a lot of light in, making it a pleasant place to be on a sunny day.
Whilst if you head over to the bar, you can get good views of the Loop and West side districts.
Let’s talk about food. For a venue such as this, you’d expect the prices to be steep… but even in the craphole the British Pound is in at the moment, I though the prices were reasonable considering the location:
And as for the food – it was great quality. I had a burger. Others had salads…
My Burger – nicely filled and medium-well done. Don’t look at me like that. Unless its charred to a crisp, and can’t be revived with a defliberator, I’ll have my meat well killed and dead.
Lobster and Avocado Salad.
The food itself was great quality – it seems that being 95 floors up doesn’t prevent good food being served.
But events like this are only partially to do with the food – they’re to do with friendships and catching up with people.
And this is what this venue did – allowed people to connect and reconnect.
Perhaps that’s the greatest gift at all travel does – brings people together.
