Last year Amos and I went to Chicago for Lollapalooza and it was a blast. It was my first time ever in Chicago and it is such a beautiful city. My favorite part of the city was the weather and architecture. All the buildings looked like a painting to me. Living in the south means that we have pretty hot summers so it was a nice change for the weather to not be so humid and not be drenched in sweat; especially since we were spending the majority of our time outside.
Amos has a close friend who lives in Chicago and we met up with her and we went to a few of the hot local spots to eat. The best restaurant we went to was the Girl and Goat. We made our reservations months in advanced and it was well worth it. The menu was set up where you order a few small plates and share with the table, which was great since you wanted to try everything.
The food and buildings were all beautiful, but our main purpose of course was the music. We lucked out and had these amazing passes that allowed us to be backstage and go into private sitting areas with free alcohol. It was so laid back and I loved all the acts. There is a band for everyone and I love that about these huge festivals. We would love to go back again some time, but we have other festivals that are on the top of our list now; however, we wouldn't mind just going back to see more of the city. Here are a few pictures from our trip.
