Chicago Trip Day 2: The Rehearsal Dinner

Because I forgot to take shots at lunch, my only food shots from that day were from the rehearsal dinner, held at Maggiano’s Little Italy.

Dinner was served family-style, so there are a lot of big dishes below… The first pictured was the Chicken Farfalle…

The salmon was just scrumptious…

Spaghetti with marinara… definitely a standard…

Speaking of standards, here’s a shot of the Eggplant Parmigiana…

Veggies are a very good thing…

…and of course we saved room for dessert! Lemon cookies and spumoni…

Is Dan playing with his food again?


We took a little while to find an El Station (Merchandise Mart was the nearest, but we couldn’t find an obvious entrance). While walking to the next station, we crossed the Chicago River… Granted, this shot’s not of anything edible, but the view of the river is quite beautiful at night.

Eventually we returned to our hotel and crashed… The night was relatively young compared to the previous one, but we would have a long day ahead of us…
