Out of the office: Chicago in 24 hours

Monday, August 13, 2018
 As an associate creative director at an ad agency, I sometimes have to travel for work and recently it's been pretty frequent.  These are usually very quick trips sometimes within a 24 hour time span as was the case here where we had market research happening in Chicago. The days are loaded with an agenda but whenever there is a free break, I always try to a) get some fresh air and b) squeeze in ANY kind of exploration whether its a local restaurant, neighborhood, or landmark. 
 I wanted to see "the bean"!  Officially called Cloud Gate, this sculpture by Anish Kapoor, supposedly represents passage through realms This was actually my second time in chicago over the summer for work and ironically, the first time, my hotel was literally a block away from millenium park and I didn't get to see it. On this trip, I had to run to the apple store to get a headphone adaptor and used this break to take a  "walking tour" along michigan ave.  I saw  the chicago tribune building...

the apple store—which was beautiful with the floor to ceiling windows overlooking the river
 speaking of the river...
 And then I reached the bean!
 back at the hotel, a clear view of Navy Pier
 Fun to get a small dose of chi-town.  If i'm back again, any suggestions on what to see or eat or experience?
