Now that I am back, I've been busy with work and closing escrow on a house. The house is literally three houses from the beach. I'm at a higher elevation than my two neighbors as well. The rising oceans will need to wipe-out these two properties, before I'll have beach-front property.

I just Googled Chicago breakfast and Chicago dinner, read the menus of the restaurants that came-up in Google and decided where to eat. Hmm

Places where I ate:

Had the West Coast Crepes with cheesy grits

The Dearborn
One night I had the buttermilk chicken with maple glaze, mashed pots, and sauteed brussels sprouts (sauteed brussel sprouts, pumpkin seeds, mustard vinegarette, parm cheese)
Another night: Had the Dearborn burger and truffle fries

Wildberry Cafe
Had the Napa Valley Fig omlette with Blueberry Danish speciality pancake instead of toast.
