The Bean

After getting our pizza at Boni Vino's (see previous post!) Nicole took me to the famous sculpture in Millennium Park called Cloud Gate created by an Indian born British artist named Anish Kapoor. Yes I Wikipedia-ed it! Cloud Gate was nicknamed The Bean obviously because of it's shape. The Bean reflects the city's skyline. It was an awesome piece of modern art. Nicole & I had a blast taking silly pictures with our reflections on the underside of it & the outside!

Boni Vino Pizza

My friend Nicole was showing me all of the tourist attractions in the windy city when we stumbled upon a little, inconspicuous pizza place called Boni Vino's. At first we were a little hesitant but soon realized that we had made a great decision in choosing this place. Our waitress was top notch, a super nice lady who told us about a great pizza deal & helped us avoid buying a ginormous pizza between the two of us. I also got to try a Chicago brew beer called Goose Island which was delicious. It was perfect with my sausage & garlic pizza. Although it wasn't the "deep dish" style, it was still the absolute best pizza I ever had while in Chi-Town. It's a few blocks away from the Willis Tower so if you are ever in that area of the city, I would definitely recommend it.

Sears Tower

Back to the Chicago posts! Here are pictures from the Sears Tower Skydeck or now known as the Willis Tower. It was seriously badass. The skydeck is 103 stories high & you could see all of Chicago from the top! Stepping onto the skydeck was crazy cool. It was so hilarious & so scary though because this Asian tourist dropped her digital camera on the skydeck right when I was on it and everyone went silent ... you could hear people going.. "OHHHHH no she didn't!!" Hahaha. Fortunately the skydeck is not that sensitive, the glass did not break, & I did not fall through the sky hahaha. :-P 
P.S. Sorry, I forgot to take a picture from the outside of the tower!
