Superb location, within walking distance of everything great in Chicago.
The hotel is somewhat dark indoors,but rooms are spacious and modern, appointed with contemporary artwork. Displays of rock star memorabilia on each floor.
Splurge and get a room onthe Tower -- 30th Floor and above. Awesome views.
Fresh orchids in the bathroom -- nice touch. Roomy showers with bathsheet sized towels.
Delicious Thai food. Sure, this restaurant is not much to look at, but the food is great and the location is certainly convenient. My dish of choice is the shrimp and scallops. They have an excellent veggie dish too. They get the spices just right for my taste.
We received a large basket of flowers for Thanksgiving from Jacob Marse Florists. Beautiful autumn colors: oranges, yellows, reds. The arrangement was awesome. Today, nearly four weeks later, the basket it still looking great. Outstanding.
I've always loved going to Twin Palms. It's been a favorite of mine for at least 14-15 years. Great atmosphere, wonderful Sunday gospel brunches, excellent food. But alas, Twin Palms has become another casualty of the economic downturn. They will close their doors November 25. Now THAT is a bummer.
A decent place to get barbecue, but nothing to write home about. The cornbread was dry -- a cardinal sin in my book. However, the meat was tender, and the sauce tangy. The macaroni and cheese? It was runny and strange-looking. Prices are reasonable. Overall, it was OK. Just keep in mind that there are better barbecue places out there.
Excellent car wash, fast service. Good attention to detail. Multiple options are offered, with add-ons with everything from wheel brite to air freshener and polyseal. It's not inexpensive, but if you want it done right, it's worth it.
Yoshi's is the premiere place to go to hear jazz in the East Bay. I've heard some incredible musicians perform there over the years -- Dizzie Gillespie, McCoy Tyner, Branford Marsalis, Oscar Peterson...
I make the trek to Yoshi's whenever I'm in the Bay Area. And yes, the sushi is pricey, but it's superb and worth every penny.
From an architectural standpoint, this building is radically different from the traditional cathedrals most of us are accustomed to. It is not at all ornate, yet there is real beauty in its simplicity and sparseness. Adjoining the cathedral are gardens and a gift shop.
I recommend taking the tour. It is very informative. Gregory Peck is buried here.
I live far from Savannah, but we order from their catalogue. Wonderful candy -- especially the pecans / pralines. For the holidays and other special occasions, it's worth the shipping charge to have the best.
We've been coming here since we were kids. I even remember that huge sign that was a landmark on Huntington Drive: "Twoheys, Home of the little Stink-o" (burger.)
Twoheys used to be a 50's-style drive-in diner like you see in the old movies. It was a great hang-out for my high school crowd. I admit it lost a lot of its charm when it was converted to a sit-down restaurant, but it's still a decent place to go. Only now, I bring my own kids. The menu has a variety of burgers with amusing names. I still love those hot fudge sundaes.
