In September my parents and my brother and sister-in-law came to visit. We did a lot of tourist stuff, since we were practically tourists ourselves back then. We ate a ton of good food and saw a lot of stuff, too. They stayed at The Aqua. It’s new and really cool.
First things first. Friday we went up to The Nordstrom Rack so I could return a dress and DM could look at shoes. It’s near Littleton so we went over to a yummy place called Toast in downtown historical Littleton. Seems like it used to be a cute place. A Little Town.
For those of you wondering where to take your next date, consider Colorado Springs’ brand new Costco. For under $5, you and your date can get a fine meal. And also, while you’re there, maybe even pick up 40 rolls of toilet paper and a 600-pound bag of dog food.
Chicago Day One We got into Midway about an hour apart then took the “El” into downtown where our hotel was. We were hungry and wanted a nosh so we went to Portillo’s for Chicago hot dogs. I got a good shot of DM’s chili dog: My Chicago Dog pic
