A Boat Tour on the Chicago River

Chicago River Boat Tour

The day after my graduation – we took my dad out for a Father’s Day breakfast at Le Peeps in Evanston. I picked up a Northwestern polo shirt for him.

Then we dropped off my Ate’ Gigi at Midway so that she could catch a flight back to Sin City.

For the rest of us – our flight didn’t leave until around 8ish. So, we headed downtown to take in the sights.

I suggested a boat tour on the Chicago River – a great way to see all the cool buildings and city stuff – without the headache of navigating Chicago-land traffic. That weekend – they closed down several Lake Shore Drive exits for the upcoming “Taste of Chicago.”

An hour boat tour gave us an amazing lesson about all the styles that make up the Second City – can you guess why Chicago got that nickname?

I wish we had a cool scavenger hunt like this…

Yahoo! News – In Chicago, a Scavenger Hunt Unlike Others

“Some of this year’s challenges: Build a “Calvin Kleinometer”; produce “a McDonald’s Sad Meal”; construct a diorama tribute to dioramas with no infinite regressions; replicate Gustav Klimt (news – web sites)’s “The Kiss” using only lip prints made with cosmetics that haven’t been tested on animals; and “demonstrate conclusively that there really is a wrong way to eat a Reese’s (candy).”

UIC students are cool….Medill had its own scavenger hunt, but I don’t think it gave us as many oppertunities to be creative. Ours was a “public records and Chicago historical sites” scavenger hunt – checking out court documents, business filings and the Billy Goat. It was also one of the coldest days ever in Chicago – that made the hunt oh so much more painful….

but we had fun…
