Open House

The Chicago Architecture Foundation had an open house this weekend at hundreds of historic buildings, apartments, museums, theaters, etc etc. Most of which are not open to the public. So here's a quick rundown of where I went today: Brewster Apartments, Elks National Veterans Memorial, the National Shrine of St. Francis Xavier Cabrini, headed downtown and passed by Roosevelt University and the Congress Plaza Hotel, then the Fine Arts Building, walked down Van Buren to the Chicago Board of Trade where they opened the vault to the public for the first time in 80 years. So much history today, I was like a kid in a candy store. Can't wait for this next year!
