Rick's Roadshow: Chicago- Final Day

Rick's Roadshow isn't especially exciting today, but I thought I'd write a quick post to let you know how much I've enjoyed being back in Chicago. The majority of my trip was spent on the south side of Chicago attending business meetings, but last night I went downtown for dinner at the famous Shaw's Crab House. This is the only photo I took all evening- it is of course the Chicago Theatre marquis, taken from within my taxi cab on State Street. Anyway back to Shaw's. It's the sort of place that people go for all kinds of fresh shellfish, oysters and sushi. It has a fun, comfortable atmosphere and offers delicious food. Since I am allergic to shell fish, I grazed on some calimari and had a nice salad. For my entree I went with a blue cheese encrusted filet, which was cooked to perfection. We had a dessert sampler, of which I had exactly one fork-full since I was so full. It was a fun evening, but I didn't stay out late as I had an early flight to catch to Providence, where Rick's Roadshow will continue. I'm taking today off work as a "personal day" so my travels will hopefully yield some fun photos to share. Hope you have a great Friday too!

Enjoy Providence and tell us all about it.

Allergic to shellfish! That's just sad.
Tell the family I said hello.

I ate so much seafood in my youth (growing up in South Florida, seafood was consumed several times a week), that I was "allergic" to all things sea for years. I finally built up my immunity again; I hope I NEVER have to deny myself seafood again, but I love a good steak now and again...

Glad the weather here was nice for your trip. Sorry you didn't have a chance to do much other than business. Fannie May is great--I love the toffee.
