Chicago Day 1: Ghirardelli, River North

After a short rest back in the hotel, we headed out again around 7:30PM. Ben brought us to the Millennium Park while there is still some light.


My first view of the Cloud Gate, also known as the The Bean.


The reflection of the skyline on the stainless steel is amazing.


We were still full from the late buffet lunch from Reza’s, so we decided to skip dinner. In place of that we went for a sweet treat at Ghirardelli.


We had been to the Ghirardelli in San Francisco and Nanzaro is really keen to revisit this confectionery.


There are so much chocolates to choose from. We were given a small chocolate to try when we entered the store.


We came here for the dessert and ice-cream.


Ben and I shared a Ghiradelli Hot Fudge Sundae (I think). It’s super sweet and rich.


Nanzaro ordered the Ocean Beach with salted caramel. It was too much for him too that he offered to share with me.


Ghirardelli is a place to splurge while on vacation, not an everyday kind of place to indulge.


We saw another bride and groom taking wedding photos at the plaza where Ghirardelli is. Summer is a busy season for weddings.
