Chicago – next weekend

Sally and I will be going up to Chicago next weekend. Getting there in time to go to the openning of Wired’s Nextfest on Thursday out on Navy Pier. Going to see some Frank Lloyd Wright homes and buildings. Visiting the Art Institute, etc. We’ll be staying at the Talbott Hotel on Delaware.
We’re open to suggestions for places to see, places to get a meal and things to do.


  1. If instead you are going to see the Robie House in Hyde Park, and if you have any interest in ancient art, find some time to hit the Oriental Institute just a block away from Robie (the staff at the gift shop can direct you). The museum is small and free, and has fantastic Egyptian and Persian artifacts.

  2. Sorry, left out part of the comment.

    If you are going to Oak Park, read this NYT article for some great recommendations. If possible, take the tour of Wright’s Home and Studio — it’s stunning, and there are several great prairie style homes on the same block.

  3. Has someone heard about the oriental Institut in europe?
