I guess that title will tell some of you how old I am and others will wonder what the heck a “toddlin’ town” is. If you’re curious check this out. In addition to New York, Sinatra sang about Chicago.
The Windy City was the first stop in the “My Health. My Body. My Voice. . .Learning to Live Summer Book Tour.” Her appearance at the International Museum of Surgical Science on July 5th was very well received. She did a fantastic job and the audience was interested and enthusiastic. The museum was fascinating–lots of interesting historical information and displays about medicine.
We arrived in Chicago in time for the Fourth of July weekend, so we had the time to look around and see some of the sights.
One of the real highlights of the trip was having dinner at Graham Elliot Bistro. Cristy is a huge fan of Master Chef and she and Graham have been Twitter friends for some time. We were excited about going to the Bistro and Graham was the consummate host. And the food! You can’t beat it. There’s no doubt he is one of the best.
Never saw one of these before, but I’ve discovered they are in many cities across the country: Sprinkles’. Cupcake ATMs. That’s right. You can buy a cupcake at an ATM designed especially to dispense cupcakes. They offer a variety of freshly baked cupcakes. Just slide your credit card, select a flavor (even one for Fido) and the machine goes to work and dispenses a delicious cupcake.
Chicago was definitely a fun city.
