A delicious time was had by all

My niece and I took a guided walking tour of the sweeter side of Chicago. For two hours we moved from shop to shop, visiting restaurants and shops and their kitchens, sampling champagne truffles and chocolate cupcakes and Belgian waffles and crunchy peanut butter cups.

Since she's a budding chef, my niece took it all in like the semi-pro that she is. Me? I just enjoyed the sweets and being in Chicago neighborhoods I don't get to very often. But now that I'm crashing from the sugar buzz, I'd like a nap.


  1. That sounds quite heavenly. I'd really love to do something like that.

    Two things I like about all my visits to Chicago was the food and the neighborhoods. Chicago is an unique city that has a lot to offer besides the Cubs.

  3. Sounds like a lot of fun, and interesting too. It's great to get out of our regular neighborhoods and check out what the rest of our town has to offer, and with chocolate added, so much the better!

  4. I was going to do a write up for UpTake about some of Boston's chocolate tours - glad to hear they are as yummy and fun way to spend a day as they sound!


Sorry about adding Comment Moderation, folks. But look at the bright side, at least I've gotten rid of word verification!
