We used to stay there before it sold....looks like nothings changed. it was a residential hotel then but Emmanuel used to give us keys to 3 rooms and let us decide which we could do. it was 60 bucks then and that's still all it's worth but it was a big part of the festival for us.


I live thirty minutes from downtown Chicago, and even I rarely make it away from Michigan Avenue and the museums. It doesn't help that most of the time I'm giving a tour of sorts to some out-of-state friend, but still... I never grow tired of seeing Millennium Park and Buckingham Fountain and the Field Museum and whatnot. Guaranteed to be a great time and a huge pain to one's feet. (Love the pedicure, by the way! It definitely adds a unique touch to your pictures.)


Is this a Midwest version of 'Where's Waldo?' - Find the Queen's toes.


Your toes enjoying a pizza is the funniest thing I've seen all day.


Nice travelog, and nice blatant attempt to remain Queen of Toe Porn. ;)


I really enjoyed the pictures of your foot. Now I'm rethinking my pink toenail polish. Your toes look much more sophisticated than mine.


JO - We didn’t have Emmanuel, we had “Petey” (not his real name, unless “Petey” is a common name in Bangladesh). Every time the phone rang while he was talking to us, he would say “Oh, give me a BREAK!” and pick it up. He was stressed. Kind of like an Indian Basil Fawlty.
Rachelskirts - (Hi!) The thing I don’t like is when I take a friend to the Saint Louis Art Museum to see my favorite painting or exhibit – and it’s on loan to the Art Institute of Chicago. You have Nighthawks! Why do you need the big hefty Woman that was in our lobby for years?
Becs - Actually, it’s an homage to Mr. Bear from Catherine from LA’s site (sothathappened.typepad.com).
TasterSpoon - I liked the subtlety of that one.
Jammies – you know, you egged me on in your comments on your site.
KC - Oh, you can thank Catherine the Red for turning me on to that French Pedicure. It was from someplace near Saint Louis Hills.


Love the toes!


sue --- Oooo, lesbian toe porn.

When you said that Gary sounds like a flock of seagulls when he's upset, I thought you were saying he sounds like A Flock Of Seagulls when he's upset.


Vaguely - damn! I meant to Google to see if that really was a band. I read somewhere someone had a "Flock of Seagulls" haircut. I was listening to NPR at that time, so I'm not familiar with them.
