How to deal with a power outage…

This past weekend we unfortunately fell victim to a power outage that left all the houses on our block without power. And it so happened that we were in a middle of a heat wave. Oh no! What shall we do? One solution: Staycation. We hopped onto Hotwire and found a great deal to stay for two nights at the Intercontinental Hotel.

Here are some highlights from our weekend:

A pic of the swimming pool at the hotel. We did not take advantage of this but I thought it looked cool.

We took a walk down the lakefront path and found this little heavenly path.

We have been wanting to go the Shaw’s voted the bet seafood restaurant in Chicago. And it didn’t disappoint. We indulged a little and got oysters, crab cakes, lobster bisque, scallops, lobster and finishing the meal off with key lime pie. Yum!

Ended the night with a free music concert at Millennium Park.
