Dreaming of a Chicago Hot Dog & The Bean - Places I want to go to Again When Covid19 is Over



I am dreaming of a Chicago Hot Dog & The Bean in Chicago, IL, and that time, my job flew me out there to pick up a record collection. 

Recently with my grandma leaving to outer space, I've realized that in life the best memories are the small things.

I'm on a hunt for a video I never posted of me and my Abuela making nacatamales and her talking through the process. And I stumbled across pictures I took in the downtown Chicago park that sits right in front of the Contemporary Art Museum. 

I remember, I didn't have much to explore the city - just the day or really just a couple of hours before we had to head back to the airport, so we snuck in the important things. Hot dogs in the park and an art museum.

My co-worker thought I was silly when I said, let's go to the park to eat a Chicago hot dog, as we got hot dogs, it felt like the perfect tourist experience. So we sat down in the park downtown to enjoy these dogs before we went for REAL dinner. 

Despite not being able to go to The Bean due to fog, I am so happy I got this giant panorama in front of the Museum of Contemporary Art of Chicago.  

 As an art history nerd, I'm always down to explore a museum.

I really loved the parking garage, it featured tons of quotes and one from one of my favorites, Jim Henson. 


If you asked me right now, where would you like to visit once Covid19 is over? For me, I am dreaming of another trip to Chicago with a hotdog in the park, but also a trip to see The Bean to see what all the rating and raving is about. 

Where you'd like to explore once Covid is over, let us know in the comments below.
