Last night

Hi guys...I need your help here. Hubby is done with walking around.

We are a five minute walk from the blue line and that's about as far as he's willing to go ;(

We haven't seen a good view of the city at night yet (exception is from the condo). Would a night cruise be worthwhile? Should we go to the Wit or JH Tower or Willis instead? Keeping in mind that I have a slightly irrational fear of heights, do you think the observation decks/lounges in question would be a wise idea?? If we did this I would definitely need a drink...

Again, I have read the posts and the reviews, but I'm really looking for someone to make the decision for me! I really want to make the most of tonight!

You've been given good advice and you know your options. I think the person you need to have a discussion with is your traveling companion.

Go have a drink at the Signature Lounge at the top of the John Hancock Building. The view is worth it, even if you don't like heights. Oh, and why not go by cab?

Take the blue line outside of the downtown tourist zone and get off at Damen. You'll be in the Bucktown/Wicker Park area. Much quieter and less hectic than downtown. Plenty of dining and window shopping options within a short walk.

Get on one of the boats for a lake or river tour.
