Chicago in the Winter

I headed out to Chicago for the RSNA Conference held annually at the McCormick Place Convention Center. My flight out to Chicago was delayed nearly 2 hours and I ended up getting into my hotel really late.

All the local restaurants were closed and I was forced to order food from the hotel. This spicy bleu cheese burger actually wasn't bad.


Snow fell my first night there but it actually wasn't that cold yet.


Here was a little tribute to diMaggio's 56-game hitting streak on Taylor St


McCormick Place Convention Center


Downtown Chicago at sunset is just magnificent






Can't leave Chicago without a shot of Cloud Gate - a.k.a. "the bean" at Millennium Park


See the icicles? It was so sunny but only about 16 degrees on my last day!


The el train is the easiest and cheapest way to get around Chicago - on my way to Midway
