Welcome to the north side!

And I was there Thursday. There is a smallish river there, right on the lake. It's quite beautiful. We walked the grounds. 20 years since I was last in Chicago. What a lovely place. We stayed down south right next to the new Cermak green line L station. Chinatown and Sze Chuan Restaurant in particular were a treat. The AIOC was an intense treat, of course, exceeding our anticipations. Our newly graduated IIoT architect from very young childhood family friend gave us a full day walking architecture tour of The Loop. Apparently the Farmhouse Restaurant is an architect's hangout; I can recommend the Indiana aquacultured shrimp. They actually have taste approximating the fresh netted shrimp of my youth in Florida. Lovely lovely. And the river walk, on Saturday, what a spectacle! Gelato, watching the boating and kayaks(??!!) frenzy on the river near Lake St. Apparently this is new. Certain commenters on this blog would dislike the fully diverse multicultural vibe though. I should like to take them to Harold's Chicken Shack.
