Very busy week ended with a very busy weekend. My birthday was yesterday, and we began with brunch at Medici’s Restaurant on East 57th Street here in Hyde Park. We’d never been there for anything but pizza, which is fantastic! Their Eggs Benedict and Sweet Potato Pancakes are amazing, too! Went to the Loop in the afternoon to see the sights and had dinner in the Walnut Room on the 7th floor of Macy’s on State Street, formerly Marshall Fields & Company. Delicious chicken pot pie! Fireworks are every Wednesday and Saturday evening throughout the summer, so we went to Promontory Point Park about 20 minutes from our housing at the seminary, and watched the fireworks from Navy Pier. Today, we worshiped at Augustana Lutheran Church across the street from the seminary, then went to the worship at Rockefeller Chapel on the University of Chicago campus. Got to tour the Carillon Tower and heard a concert, too. Lots of photos here:
