1. The few times I have had Chicago deep dish pizza while living here have failed to win over my heart from my long favored thin crust varieties, but our friends have claimed to know a place that will change my mind so hopefully we can see if the hype lives up!
2. The Aviary has been a destination I have wanted to have cocktails at since our first day in this city, but somehow we never made it there until now! I am giddy like a child thinking about reservation this weekend for their 5-course cocktail & food tasting menu!
3. Even though we are headed back to the beautiful beaches of the west coast, I would love to spend a beach day at Chicago's North Ave beach just once before we leave- hopefully the weather cooperates this weekend!!
