Proof that ceilings can make or break a place!

They have changed it up a bit through the years, but it still looks like someone shoved a Christmas tree through the roof!

…with trains circling the rooms, great service, and the funniest of characters patronizing the bar. It will make for a promising night.

My favorite Christmas bar:

Nutcracker (Chicago, Illinois)

My annual tradition with a very special man!

A great presentation of Clara and Fritz in the 1850’s on Christmas Eve. Love the Land of Snow, the Kingdom of Sweets and the Divertissements from all over the world!!

Interesting as Swan Lake (long) was Tchaikovsky’s first ballet, and The Nutcracker (compact) was his last.

Merry Christmas!

Twilight (Chicago, Illinois)

A fantastic moment of twilight on Chicago’s Gold Coast reclaims this city’s dignity after a very foggy morning of limited views.

From the 27th floor, it’s very clear, ‘the people live in layers’. šŸ˜‰

Did someone say 4 Cheese Tortellini?

Well, we were 3 people ‘cheesing it’. Ha ha!

An old late night favorite was brought back to life…

Better of course, with great bar service from Brian, Christmas lights, and my stories of coming in here with friends back in 2007/2008.

Love this place!

Stinky Onion (Chicago, Illinois)

The name “Chicago” is the French version of the Miami-Illinois word shikaakwa (“Stinky Onion”), named for the plants common along the Chicago River.

Although originally settled by Yankees in the 1830s, later in the century, it attracted the Europeans, especially the Germans, Irish, Scandinavians, English, and Dutch.

I miss the walkability of the city with the organization found in the grid system of the streets. Much different than Houston!!
