We spent a beautiful weekend in Chicago – blessed with nice, warm weather in late October!

We took the Metra train in from the suburbs – as we did, we saw that there was a some sort of filming going on at Union Station. We found out it was for “Flags of Our Fathers” directed by Clint Eastwood.

Lou Mitchell's - Chicago, Illinois

We walked a couple blocks away for breakfast at Lou Mitchell’s and spent the rest of the day taking lots of photos! We visited the site of the Eastland disaster, the site where Public Enemy #1 John Dillinger was killed, and the site of the St. Valentine’s Day Massacre.
