This weekend I went to Chicago and had an amazing time. I'll spare you most of the details because you will no doubt shrivel up with jealousy. Suffice it to say, I ended up in the Signature lounge in Hancock Center, along with Obama's campaign workers.

Tip for the wise: When visiting Chicago, to avoid the 13 dollar fee to go to the observation deck in Hancock, go to the Signature Lounge for drinks. An incredible drink is 13 bucks, and you get the same amazing view. A real win-win, I would say. Oh, and for the ladies, go to the women's rest room.

Not for the great pictures or anything...
