Chicago-land

We spend alot of time traveling around the Midwest and Chicago happens to be one of our favorite cities. Our most recent trip had us staying in Lincoln Park at the Days Inn on Diversey. It’s an excellent little hotel that has recently been remodeled. The staff was friendly and attentive. Included with your room is a free continental breakfast in the morning. Theirs starts nice and early around 6:30 and goes until 11 am… so plenty of time to sleep in and still get in on those free waffles.

We like the Lincoln Park neighborhood as there are lots of unique small shops and nice restaurants to eat at. The Days Inn is on the corner by a couple great shoe stores, a Starbucks and a Panara. About a mile away near Halstead and Armitage is the Cafe Babareeba tapas restaurant where we met up with our good friend Toya for a bite. We enjoyed a pitcher of the white sangria, some of the Calamaris ala plancha and laughed until the wee hours.
