Beautiful City. Great Walking Tours... and Pubs.
Paul and I, ready for a long walk-about. November 2017.
My son and I booked a room at The Essex Inn on Michigan Avenue, within walking distance of many amenities that would make our six-day adventure a full one. We were close to Millennium Park, ever-handy subway lines and buses, small and large breweries, pubs and restaurants, rich museums and galleries and much more.
At its heart our trip was a beer tour and we planned to walk as much as possible. I took a warm jacket and toque and two cameras. We covered dozens of miles per day and I took scores of pictures.
What a city! Good beer abounds, along with stimulating conversations and one odd, happy coincidence. Example - I met a cousin I did not even know I had at Jolly Pumpkin! Too weird. More details to follow : )

Revolution Brewery and taproom. Great menu, lower right in photo.
Where are we? Very close to a great selection of beers...
We made it to The Map Room. It's all about the maps! Sure, sure.

Easy, scenic walking
Was the tour worth the time? Yes to that.
Cheers at Lagunitas brewery, a vast enterprise.
