SUNDAY, PART II
On Sunday night, U and I headed to Millennium Park, which was hosting a concert tribute to Frédéric Chopin.
The Frank Geary-designed bandshell is awesome.
The lawn was full of picnicking people. They know that Millennium Park is by far the best place to see a concert these days. (And not just because it's free).
Plus there are all the other attractions - such as The Bean by Anish Kapoor.
There's something very reassuring about seeing everyone interact with it.
No one is immune.
We also visited the video-installation fountain, which the kids love.
And saw the little stream that runs through the park and leads to the new modern wing of the Art Institute.
We did not walk (or urinate) on the BP Bridge.
We did, however, see the Guru Purnima full moon.
And the lit-up the bandshell.
As Catesey likes to say, "There's nothing [else] like it in New York."
It really is one of the best things about the Windy City.
