The Mrs. and I celebrated our 13th anniversary on Tuesday, and spent the night, sans kids, downtown.
We saw Harry Connick Jr. in concert Tuesday night. WOW! If you get a chance to see him perform live, do it.
The next day we took an architecture tour around the city and saw, among numerous other buildings, the Rookery:
The S.R. Crown Hall at IIT, where they were hosting Warhol’s Silver Clouds:
And the IIT campus center with the L going right through the building:
It was just a wonderful little getaway.
So the Mrs. and I were lucky enough to have one more day out together (thanks to her folks) before we take the back-to-school-and-taking-care-of-the-kids-while-juggling-cartooning plunge.

As well as Unity Temple, one of Wright’s favorite commissions:
Unfortunately, the groundbreaking poured concrete is showing some wear:
I’m pretty sure Wright didn’t design these:
I also picked up this new addition to my office at a nearby store:
