sweet home chicago...

Heading to my hometown of Chicago for meetings, sights & snacks.


Just a small part of the incredible team that helps to make angelo:HOME the best it can be:
Ken, Tom & Jenn! Met with everyone back in Chicago that makes everything run smoothly and it was good times & good food.


Speaking of food, Ken, Tom and I headed out to breakfast before the Bears game on Sunday and LOU MITCHELL'S is an institution in the city. You have to go. The wait is worth it and Maria (the assistant manager) will take incredible care of you!


At Soldier Filed. The Bears lost. I have nothing else to say...


Holiday lights & sights around the city.

I love Chicago so much! It's one of my favorite places to visit. Your pictures are making me miss it. Chicago is so much fun during the holidays. But I must admit that I don't miss the weather! Hope you have a wonderful time. Kathy

I just love that City. We have visited many times and it's one of my favorites during the Holidays! It looks like you had fun. I bet Baxter missed you.

These pics are gorgeous. I love those recommendations you gave jennifer. I am going to use them myself. It's always great visiting your blog.

Great Pictures!

Angelo, you have the best life. Hope you're enjoying your Holidays. I love watching you on TV!!!

I too will be passing your recommendations on to a Nephew of mine; a Pilot who recently was hired by an Airline that flies frequently to Chicago. (Thanks Angelo!)

Now about that store-front window all dressed in white and framed in lace. Hope you don't mind me downloading the photo as wish to show it to my Son who earns his living in Visual Display. (Thank you again.)

Wishing you and those close to your heart A WONDERFUL HOLIDAY SEASON and A VERY MERRY CHRISTMAS.

Brenda-

Glad to hear the recommendations will be passed on. I think your nephew will enjoy them AND no worries with the window display being passed on. I hope it inspires your son. It's actually a Tiffany store window, one of their smaller ones, that's only about 2'x3'...it's was better looking in person.

Hope you and your family have a wonderful Christmas and the Best New Year!

Your city is a great one! I have enjoyed many a day there and none are more beautiful than at Christmastime. Thank you for the pictures. I am now booking my ticket to Chicago before the Holiday cheer departs.

And the Packers won :P Sorry I'm born and raised Packer fan. We can root for the Bears when they don't play the Packers though here in Wisconsin.

I always enjoy visiting Chicago, next to home it's one of my favorite cities
