For the second half of my Midwest Trip, I returned to one of my favorite cities for a hockey game and more foodie fun! After St. Louis, it was back to Chicago!
Staying near the Magnificent Mile, I enjoyed fusion fare at Sunda my first night. The Scallop and Salmon Nigiri, Pork Adobo Fried Rice, and Black Cod really hit the spot!
My second day in The Windy City was game day! I started off with fabulous deep dish pizza at Pequod’s where I loved their signature caramelized crust. Then it was off to a couple local breweries – On Tour Brewing Company and Great Central Brewing Company.
Then I walked over to United Center to watch the New Jersey Devils and Chicago Blackhawks! NHL arena #15! My cousin hooked me up with a reservation at the Chicago Stadium Club where I enjoyed their cocktails and Club Burger before heading down to a great seat. I met up with a couple fellow fans from a Facebook group after the game!
The following day, I had lunch at Sushi-San. I took a seat the sushi bar and had great Sushi, the Togarashi Chicken Nuggets, and Japanese Eggplant Tempura. So good!
Later that night, I had one of the coolest dining experience I’ve ever had at EL Ideas! I sat inside the kitchen and watched Chef Phillip Foss and his awesome team prepare a fantastic tasting menu! It was fun, interactive, and delicious!
After dinner, I met up with those fellow Devils fans for some downtown bar hopping. Live music, mystery bucket drinks, pool, and bubble hockey – what a night!
I got my Thai fix at Star of Siam and enjoyed a great brunch at The Publican.
I had a chance to visit the International Museum of Surgical Science. It’s the only museum in North America dedicated to surgery!
That evening was all about cocktails and Steak Tartare at Wood, a couple Margaritas, and more drinks at a Game of Thrones-themed popup at Replay Lincoln Park.
It was my final night in the Windy City and just like last time, I ended the night at Three Dots and a Dash. It has become one of my all-time favorite bars! Oh, those Tiki Drinks. 😉
