Chicago Style is part of the Round The Atlantic Trip Report.
Step 1: Check into hotel.
Step 2: Complain about no upgrade.
Step 3: Take photos of hotel room for blog.
That’s where most blogs end. Not TPOL. I have to document everything. Why? Because one day I will be stuck at home with nothing to do and nowhere to go. Sound familiar? In this installment, I checked out of the Waldorf Chicago and into the Tremont Chicago. With Step 2 and 3 out of the way, it was time to play a variation of my favorite pastime in Hong Kong (see How to Explore Hong Kong On Foot: The 7-Eleven Drinking Game). Instead of looking for a 7-Eleven, I looked for the nearest pub and let my liver lead the way.
It’s not Scottie’s but Pippin’s is a great place to start a day of Chicago exploration (see Guns & Butter: Chicago Travel Guide (Baseball, Hot Dogs, Pizza, Beer Edition)).
TPOL’s TIP: Pippin’s Tavern is located at 806 N Rush St, Chicago, IL 60611.
When hunger struck, I went next door to Downtown Dogs, another great choice.
Bloggers: stop taking photos of the toilet. Travelers: stop reading blogs (see Giordano’s Pizza Chicago: Trust Your Taste Buds, Not Your Friends). Everyone: go explore.
