We have our usual stops which to most seem rather boring...Big Bowl on Cedar, which is a stir- fry Asian restaurant (I had pomegranate mochi), the Walnut Room which is at the Marshal Field's (I mean Macy's) on State Street and RJ Grunt's which in below my sister's condominium. I'd say...that is about the extent of our dining repertoire.Mochi
Other favorites include the restaurant at Ralph Lauren, the Neiman Marcus store restaurant and before we leave town today, we will hit Cereality...can you tell I have children. If you complain about paying $4.00 for a box of Fruit Loops in the grocery store, wait until you pay $4.00 for a cup of Fruit Loops! If you think that is not bad enough, just wait until your kids pile on the M&M's, Reece's Pieces, and Coconut and have chocolate milk on it too. Yummy! Dining at its finest. UPDATE: Cereality was closed! Space for rent. Bummer. I also try to incorporate some type of education exchange even though from an economic perspective, Adam Smith would find shopping quite educational. This trip, we went to the Field Museum..I think this is about the 12th trip for us. In addition to the 1500 dead animal carcass displays (they probably are not real--just case there are animal rights activist reading) and the oversize lizard bones (according to my tour guide they are plaster casts from molds of actual bones--whatever), there is something that every girl should see...Jewels. This time my children learned about the variety of cuts and yes, the most important skill... how to spot a fake! According to the tour guide, there may have been 6 major extinctions on the earth but many of these gem stones have survived them all. Now that is truly survival of the fittest!
