Chicago

steve and i had training to do in chicago at the motorola facility, our boss is awesome so he sent us out the weekend ahead of time to check out the city. in complete awesomeness, he bought us a BALLER room in downtown chicago, right in the heart of all the cool shit.
we flew into o’hare airport on friday night. we stepped off the plane, walked like 2 minutes and were shocked to find the place where you get your luggage so close. i even said “holy crap that was easy” and 2 seconds later my bag came out of it. we picked up our bags and walked away, i think we were in the airport for like 4 minutes.
we walked downstairs and bought a $12 city pass to all the transit systems for the weekend.
we hopped on the red line train and made our way into the city. the train was packed full of college kids, pretty neat. took a while though, but yeah its a subway so its to be expected with all the stops.

we stopped at what we though was our stop, it was our street name. we didn’t do much planning ahead of time so yeah… we came out of the subway and jumped in a cab and $6 later we were at our BALLER hotel.

we dropped off our crap and went to get some food. we found some decent bar down the street and were shocked to see how early everything closes in chicago.
