YES! Millennium Park in the heart of Chicago is a park for all of the people…moderns, old fogies, hipsters, tourists, locals, and kooks just like me. It’s located on Michigan Avenue making it easy to find. . .so get on over here and stare at yourself in this giant shiny peanut.
The Chicago Bean, or simply “the bean,” was designed by Anish Kapoor, and it has become a symbol of modern Chicago…big, bulbous, shiny, reflective, and distorting…apt descriptors for what a couple of nights in Chicago can do to you–make you a big, bloated, and distorted version of yourself that a little cardio back home can help sort out. . .mmmm, aaahh!
We stroll through the AT&T Plaza gazing at the bean, gazing at our fellow visitors, and feeling good about the opportunity to visit this fun spot. What an honor it is to tour the planet rubbing elbows with folks from everywhere reminding ourselves that we are all the same, all similar, all looking for the same things: coziness, love, support, fun, opportunity, respect, fresh air, clean water, good food, good drink, and good times. All of these things and so much more can be found in Chicago. . .pop on over here some time for a visit–Chicagoans are ready to welcome you with a smile and open arms.

It’s lovely out there.
