    Yum! Gotta love Chicago food… not too healthy but so worth it πŸ™‚

    And NO ketchup allowed! Even as a kid I wasn’t allowed to put ketchup on my hot dog, haha

    This is a Coke city. Not just that restaurant- nearly everywhere! πŸ˜€

    Ah! I have never been so jealous in my life, haha. First off, I have been dying to go to Chicago for MONTHS now…the pictures are great. It is exactly like I pictured it to be. Second, a food tour?! How lucky are you guys? That’s so awesome. The bratwurst in the pretzel bun looks ridiculous…I’ll have to try that if I ever get there. Thanks for sharing your pictures and good luck with the 16 mile run!

    Please tell me you didn’t say Garrett’s (sp?) popcorn was less than amazing. I go to Chicago every year around Christmas and wait in line for over an hour to buy a bag. It’s amazing!!!! And Chicago dogs are the best food ever. They’re passable outside of Chicago, but to get an amazing one you have to be within 30 miles of the city. I miss living that close to Chi-town when I see posts like this.

    I love half sweet – half salted popcorn. Not sure about cheddar and caramel…

    Looks like a fun (delicious) way to top off the trip! Although I wouldn’t eat a hot dog, I do like the concept that they don’t use ketchup! It’s my one phobia!

    I think food tours are a great way to see the city!

    FYI, it’s just called “The Loop”, not Millennium Loop. Did they tell you why it’s called The Loop?

    Hope you enjoyed your sixteen miler this morning!

    Love The Loop area! Chicago is such a fantastic city.

    And you weren’t a fan of the cheese/caramel popcorn? I love it – Garrett Popcorn has the best, in my opinion.

    Glad you got to enjoy some Chicago food. There are soooo many cool restaurants outside the Loop, too. Great food town.

    I love, love, love Chicago dogs! I used to work at a movie theater with a little restaurant in it in high school and we served Chicago dogs. I think the relish and celery salt really put it over the top. I always make sure to pick one up every time I go back to Chicago!

    We stayed in the Loop area last year when we were there. I can’t believe you guys didn’t try deep dish pizza. mmmmm. We were in Pittsburgh this last week and they have some pretty sweet popcorn there. We got a bag of spicy cheddar bacon.. yum! they also had reeses that my friend got and that was amazing as well!

    It was so great to meet you Meghann! I’m a big fan of your blog (in case you couldn’t tell) and it was fun talking about the puppies! I hope you’ll come to Charlotte for a visit sometime. My guest room is open if you want to and you can totally bring Maddie! I might do a Disney race if I can stay injury free, so maybe I’ll see you on your turf sometime πŸ˜‰ Keep in touch!
